Sometimes all a young person needs is someone to talk to. Well luckily, we have a mentoring program specifically for that purpose!
Young people growing up in families affected by disability, illness or addiction often feel isolated, lonely and suffer from poor mental health. The Little Dreamers mentoring program pairs a Young Carer with a mentor who is trained to do everything from hang out and go to the movies to helping with homework. Majority of our mentors grew up as a carer themselves and we try our best to pair mentees with a mentor who has experience in a similar situation (this cannot always be guaranteed).
We organise both face to face and online mentoring for those living in rural/regional areas where we are still growing our mentoring network.
