breakthru - what's on offer
You've probably already realised your home life as a young carer is different to the lives of your friends and school mates. Trying to juggle your responsibilities at home with school, friends and a social life is difficult and sometimes you can feel like you're missing out on the fun stuff. Breakthru can help make that juggling act a bit easier.
With Breakthru there's a chance to get involved in activities and events and we can help out with support and information designed for your age group. We hold camps and school holiday activities as well as family days so everyone can get involved in the fun. We can advocate on your behalf with your school or other organisations so they can better understand your situation. And you can always make use of our telephone support service or our face to face counselling, either on your own or with your whole family if that's what you need.
Most importantly, we offer someone to listen and share your concerns.
