Caring for the Young People who Care for Us
Over 300,000 young people in Australia are carers, who sacrifice many things on a daily basis in order to take care of their loved ones.
This week is National Carers Week where we recognise the contribution carers of all ages make to our society, and ensure the support is available to care for our carers too.
Shaan D'Rosario is not your average 19 year old, having cared for her wheelchair bound mum since the age of 12.
She joined Anita on the Country Viewpoint to share her story and discuss why carers are so important.
