Your Donation Matters

At Little Dreamers, we rely on the generosity of the community and donors to help us achieve our vision of a world in which every Young Carer around the world is supported by someone or something by 2020. How are we going to make this happen? We’re working to establish a peak body for Young Carers, campaigning for a National Carer Act, introducing global best practice support programs, sharing our findings at international conferences, travelling the world to speak to leaders and industry experts and creating worldwide awareness for Young Carers.

On a more personal level, you’re donation is making an incredible difference to the lives of Young Carers here in Australia. Donations go towards increasing the capacity of our programs, allowing for more Young Carers to access life-changing support.

Your money is helping provide Young Carers like Alex with the tools and support to learn, grow and thrive. Watch Alex’s story below.

Today is Prader-Willi Syndrome Awareness Day. We support two beautiful families touched by the condition, so we wanted to take some time to help spread awareness about this extremely rare syndrome.

Worldwide, there are only approximately 400,000 people diagnosed with Prader-Willi Syndrome. It's a lifelong condition and although lots of research is being carried out, there currently is no cure.
PWS is a non-inherited condition that's linked to the deletion or incompleteness of genes on the 15th chromosomes. This leads to neurological changes which cause altered growth patterns and development with associated cognitive disability and obsessive eating patterns.

There are no known reasons for the genetic accident that causes this condition, but medical professionals are learning more and more about PWS everyday, and there is hope. Hope that, through increased knowledge, we can help all people with this condition to live a fuller life despite their limitations and boost the possibility of finding a cure.

To find out more and lend your support, you can head to: praderwilli.org.au 🌟

This year's theme for National Reconciliation Week (27 May - 3 June) is 'In this Together'. Although it was announced last year, the theme couldn't be more relevant or important given what’s happening around the world right now 🌏
On our journey to reconciliation, every one of us has a role to play, and in playing our part we collectively build relationships and communities that value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories and cultures.
Whether in a crisis or in reconciliation, we really are all #InThisTogether β€οΈπŸ’›πŸ–€
