Biography

Growing up as a young carer to a brother and mother with a myriad of health issues I saw a gap in the support system, who cared for the young carers? By the time I reached high school, I had launched Little Dreamers Australia. With a mission to support the 490,000 young carers in Australia, Little Dreamers runs short term and long term support programs for Australia’s most vulnerable group of young people. As a face for political reform, I am working towards international awareness of Young Carers.
