We believe positive role models can create a lasting and vital impact to the lives of Young Carers.
Our mentoring program has helped foster some amazing bonds between Young Carers and our volunteers. This is thanks to our thorough mentor selection, research and matching process.
We match Young Carers with a mentor based on interests, experiences, personality and location. Mentors provide Young Carers with someone to hang out with, can offer help with schoolwork, provide guidance and give Young Carers a break from their caring role.Apply for Support

"With the help of Maddy and her brilliant team of mentors and behind the stage crew, I have discovered that I was actually never alone in my caring role. I may have been alone in my small little town way out in the boonies, but meeting the Little Dreamers team and the other 9 incredibly inspirational people has given me friends, people I can talk to and a place where I can feel like I’m not alone."
"The mentoring is going amazingly. Grace thinks Clee is absolutely wonderful...The previous weekend they attended a multicultural festival. Grace came home with a giant grin on her face. My husband and I are impressed with Clee’s attitude and thoughtfulness. She’s a great match for Grace."
"The positive impact that Emily's mentor has had on her is incredible. Most often she just needs to spend time with a positive influence for some respite from her caring role. It's amazing what a fortnightly catch up like this has done for her confidence and mood."
"Thank you so much for everything you have done for our family. We have found two amazing mentors for our children through your charity. Both of our children had amazing experiences. The opportunity you gave them to live their dreams was extraordinary and has impacted on them in such a positive way. Their Dream experiences have changed them forever, they will never ever forget your kindness. We can’t thank you enough. "
