The aim of the program is to empower, develop resilience and provide the opportunity to build new skills and draw out hidden talents.

Mentoring

Little Dreamers

We believe positive role models can create a lasting and vital impact in the lives of Young Carers.

Mentors provide Young Carers with someone to spend time with and reduce feelings of loneliness and social isolation for Young Carers. Mentors can offer help with schoolwork, provide guidance and give Young Carers a break from their caring role.

The Young Carer Project

Little Dreamers Little Dreamers

As it stands, 40% of Young Carers do not complete high school, often due to time constraints, lack of support and bullying.

We’re educating students, teachers and parents on what it is to be a Young Carer and how to identify, support and amplify their education journey.

Our new school accreditation program is piloting in Victoria and is also soon to begin in Brisbane.

Find out more and nominate your school to get involved.

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–€
