We work to improve the emotional and physical health, wellbeing and resilience of Young Carers to ensure that caring is a responsibility shared by Government, community and family.
Set up as a not-for-profit organisation, Little Dreamers aims to reduce the prevalence of mental illness among Young Carers by promoting social connectedness. We believe in an Australia where Young Carers have someone to care for them. Each of the Little Dreamers programs have been developed to align with the 2014 Australian National Carer Strategy.
An Australia where Young Carers are valued by the wider community, empowered by their caring role and supported to achieve better emotional health and wellbeing.
- Improve supports for the physical and emotional health and wellbeing of Young Carers. Give Young Carers greater opportunities to participate in family, social and community life to reduce social isolation.
- Strengthen awareness and understanding of the role of Young Carers and their rights as individuals.
