Check out what our 2O18 Big Dreamers got up to!
A highlight of the Big Dreamers Personal Development Program, our two retreats are designed to develop strong bonds between the Young Carers, mentors and team, whilst developing confidence, leadership and other important developmental tools for the future. The personal growth we see from the initial retreat to our final retreat is immeasurable. See for yourself in the following videos!
