Support for Student Carers

On the 17th October 2013, the Department of Education signed up to the Tasmanian Carers Action Plan 2013-2018. This important initiative formally recognises and increases awareness and respect for Tasmanian carers. The Plan seeks to improve the quality of life of Tasmania’s carers over the next five years.

Student Carers or Young Carers are young people who help care for a parent, a brother or sister, their own child, a grandparent, other relative, or maybe a friend who has a disability, mental illness or chronic illness, or who is frail and aged.
