Dream Experience

Ever wanted to ride in a hot air balloon? Or run onto the ground with your favourite footy team? Dream Experiences are our way of recognising and saying thanks to our Young Carers.

Dream Experience

School Holiday Program

Our School Holiday Program allows Young Carers to just be kids for the day, get to know other young people in caring roles and remove added stress on parents and family members during the holidays.

School Holiday Program

Big Dreamers

Being a young person between the ages of 14 and 18 is tough. Mental health becomes increasingly important for Young Carers at this age, as they navigate identity, career, relationships and the added responsibility of a caring role.

Make Life Better

Warm and Fuzzies

"Fantastic - Life changing for Young Carers to be acknowledged & supported in their role. For our daughter, it helps bridge the gap of what we can’t do with her due to our younger children’s extra needs with their disabilities. More people need to know they can access wonderful services like this."

"Nathaniel had an absolute fantastic Dream Experience, it was great just watching it be all about him, because he deserves so much, he never ask for anything..... so thank you very much for blessing him with this opportunity the smile didn't leave his face all day and it meant the world to us. "

"We worked really hard to ensure that Ethan knew that his Dream Experience was due to the incredible hard work Ethan undertakes on a daily basis as a young carer. The experience was absolutely unbelievable and Ethan felt validated, appreciated and exceptionally special. He loved every second of it."

"The program made my child feel like he was important too. He was overwhelmed and couldn't believe how lucky he was to be given this opportunity. Little Dreamers is a wonderful organisation, they made my son feel so special and made his little dream come true. I can't thank them enough. "

"Sam had reached the point where he felt that his own dreams were fast getting out of his reach because of the sacrifices he has had to make for his family and the sacrifices his family have had to make as a whole. Little Dreamers helped him no longer feel that it is impossible to reach for his dream."

"What a fantastic organisation, we were so lucky to have the kids involved for two days of your School Holiday Program in Melbourne. Everyone was so great interacting with all the children, catering to different ages an needs. Kudos to all involved. You fill a much needed area that is often overlooked."

"We just got home from the most amazing three days, our first family holiday! Maggie had the best time ever! We really don't know how to thank you, we will remember this for the rest of our lives. We are so grateful and appreciate it all so much. Little Dreamers made Maggie's dream come true and more. "

"Thank you so much for everything you have done for our family. We have found two amazing mentors for our children through your charity. Both of our children had amazing Dreams Experiences that have changed them forever, they will never ever forget your kindness. We can’t thank you enough. "

Happy Universal Children’s Day!
It’s a lot of fun working with young people on a day to day basis. They continue to teach us new ways of seeing things, expressing our individuality, and to not take life too seriously. Let’s continue to inspire our kids and watch them change the world 💛
