Did you know?

Young Carers are significantly more susceptible to low education and employment, social isolation and poor mental health. In 2016, Young Carers were recognised by the Australian Child Wellbeing Project in the top four most vulnerable youth populations in Australia.

We met Alex a couple of years ago. Alex is a primary carer for his mum, who has a condition called Transverse Myelitis and is permanently in a wheelchair. This means that Alex takes on lots of extra household duties and care tasks, in addition to being very committed to his studies. Alex is determined, hard working and humble, and his mum Amanda is also a superstar (and a former wheelchair basketball champion)! Alex has participated in a range of our programs, including Holiday Programs, Mentoring and most recently, Big Dreamers, and we've watched him develop from a quiet kid who found it difficult to articulate his caring role to his friends and teachers, to someone who recently shared his story on national television with Waleed on @theprojecttv (and also sang karaoke in front of an audience at our retreat)! We're so proud to be part of Alex's journey! 💫 #YoungCarer #LDDreamBig ...
