Being a young person between 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.

Built from personal experience and qualitative research, the Big Dreamers Personal Development Program runs for six months with 15 inspiring Young Carers aged 13-18. The aim of the program is to empower, develop resilience and provide the opportunity to build new skills and draw out hidden talents.

Mentoring, Tutoring and More

Little Dreamers

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

Mentors and tutors provide Young Carers with someone to spend time with and reduce feelings of loneliness and social isolation for Young Carers. Our volunteers 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.
