Summary of activities

Little Dreamers is working towards an equal world for Young Carers, delivering programs aiming to improve quality of life. With an estimated 1 in 10 children in Australia giving up their childhood to provide unpaid care to a family member, Little Dreamers delivers empowering and proactive support programs to reduce the risk factors that they face and increase their life opportunities. All Little Dreamers programs have been developed by Young Carers, for Young Carers targeting each of the five main risk factors that these young people face - social isolation, poor mental health, unemployment, financial and educational disadvantage. Founded in 2009, Little Dreamers supports thousands of Young Carers each year through direct support programs including Dream Experiences; holiday programs; mentoring and tutoring; in-school education and training; The Dreamers Hub, an online peer support platform; in-person peer support; and the Big Dreamers Personal Development Program. Within the wider community we also focus on advocacy for policy change, for more support and recognition for Young Carers whilst also raising awareness of the prevalence of Young Carers and how the community, the education system, friends and family can rally around for increased support.
