Little Dreamers is working to improve the quality of life for Young Carers across the country.
Our vision? To ensure that every single Young Carer around the world is supported by someone or something by 2030.
We are Australia’s leading Young Carer organisation, supporting young people between 4 – 25 years across six support programs. Over the past 10 years, Little Dreamers has become a game changing force in the Young Carer space. Whatever the support service, a common thread runs through everything we do - that young people should have access to the childhood that everyone deserves. Every Little Dreamers program works towards supporting Young Carers outside of their caring role, ensuring that these young people, have the same access to opportunities that their non-caring peers have.
With rapid growth, Little Dreamers is looking to expand our Dream Team. We are now specifically looking for a team of Facilitators for a new Peer Support Program to work across QLD.
This is your opportunity to build a career connecting with Young Carers and supporting them to improve their health and wellbeing. If you’re committed to supporting Young Carers, increasing community awareness and have experience in public speaking and/or facilitation, then this is the job for you.
Little Dreamers will be delivering In-Person Peer Support Groups for Young Carers in targeted areas across NSW and QLD as part of the wider Carer Gateway program. As a Peer Support Program Facilitator, you will find yourself delivering workshops to Young Carers around your local community. You will co- lead programs, delivering interactive workshops and group discussions with Young Carers, creating a safe and inclusive environment.
Training will be provided for all Facilitators prior to commencing the role. Each Peer Support Group will have up to 15 Young Carers and will run for eight weeks at a time. Casual Facilitators will be allocated to at least one Peer Support Group at a time to deliver workshops and support.
