Compass - Young Carers
Compass meets the hidden generation of young carers, kids like Hayley Wilson. She has been looking after her parents since she was eight and is now 16. Her mother is paraplegic and her father has a brain injury. Hayley is studying for her HSC but cooks, cleans, does the washing, and attends to family finances.
"I know homework is important but my family is more of a priority". Many young carers don't even realise that there's a name for what they're doing; let alone understand the long term effects this burden will place on their adult lives.
