The Young Carer team at Carers WA can offer free career planning and employment support services:
Did you know that as a school aged young carer, you can apply to have your caring duties formally recognised as a Community Service contribution under Western Australian Statement of Student Achievement (WASSA)?
Up to 999 hours can be uploaded to your Student Registration and Demographic file (SRGDG) and added to your WASSA.
Talk to the student services team at your school or call the Young Carer team on 1300 227 377 if you would like us to talk to your school on your behalf.
