Who We Are

We are Raw Energy an organisation that is dedicated towards helping young carers in Adelaide get emotional and financial support. We work all year round to provide young carers with opportunities to interact with others and live a better life. We have a team of experts who provide counselling to young carers feeling hopeless, depressed, de-motivated and anxious due to their current condition. They can freely talk to us, share what they feel and get emotional and financial support. We also organise events and programs to help young carers across Adelaide, South Australia. Our highly potential volunteers team ensure that you get a break from your duties and attend fun events and outings. We help you bond with others and feel loved and supported by other carers so that you can improve social and mental well-being. We can also arrange picnics for young carers aged between 7-12. For more details, you can call us or reach our customer care team. We are here to support and guide you all.

Our Mission

Most young carers are unpaid, overburdened and stressed. Our prime aim is to help them overcome challenges of being a carer at such a young age. Our other primary objects include the following.

Better Home Life

We strive to help young carers by taking on their responsibility to allow them to have a better life at home without stress or hassle. We keep them in good spirits so that they can establish strong familial connections and bonds and create a healthy living environment

Proper Funding

Many young carer’s family struggle financially which is why we help them by raising money and paying for their tuition, medical bills of the dependant etc. We help them achieve their goals and dreams by giving them secure funding that will help them do what they want.

Provide Guidance

Many young carers feel lonely and lost. They socially isolated and don’t have anyone to talk about their issues. We provide them support and guidance. We listen to their problems and help them cope with whatever they are going through so that they can have a more wholesome and comprehensive understanding of things.

Raise Awareness

Often young carers don’t know they are carers and they can seek assistance. Thus, we raise awareness through our program not just for the carers but for others too. Young carers believe that caring is a noble cause, but the study reveals when the carers do not get adequate support, it negatively impacts their mental and physical health. Thus, awareness is important.

In Australia, there are more than 235,000 young carers and a significant percentage of them live in Adelaide and other parts of South Australia.
