CANBERRA, May 31 - The Turnbull Government confirmed on Wednesday it would give $1 million to the Young Carer Bursary Program in 2018, which gives carers up to 25 years of age $3000 to help pursue education.

"The bursaries help improve young carers' education and reduce the pressure on them to work part-time to meet education costs," Assistant Social Services Minister Jane Prentice said.
