Affordable housing in Canberra: 17-year-old looking after sick father and brothers forced Out

Affordable housing in Canberra: 17-year-old looking after sick father and brothers forced Out

Date: 
Monday, May 29, 2017

Stephen is a 17-year-old who is the sole carer for his two little brothers aged nine and 10, and his father who six weeks ago had open-heart surgery. His dad was then terminated from his job as a truck driver when he was unable to work due to his ill-health. The boys' mother died last year of cancer aged just 39, and now the family is on the verge of homelessness.
