Raw Energy Young Carer Support Program – Adelaide south and east metro area

Programs and services for young carers (respite, counselling and support for young carers)

The Raw Energy Young Carer Support Program aims to work with Young Carers (aged 5-25) in ways that are respectful, meaningful and supportive to them as individuals in a caring role. Our goal is to provide Young Carers with opportunities to develop personal skills, knowledge and relationships that support them to make positive life choices. Raw Energy is open to young people who are in a significant caring role for a family member. Young people caring for those with mental illness are one of the main groups supported by the program.

Services offered by the program include:

  • Personal support
  • Social and recreational activities
  • Information and advocacy
  • Skills development and workshops
  • Educational support including tutoring
  • Young Carer respite
