relationships, that change lives

Tax Appeal 2021


The uncertainty we are all experiencing is challenging. For children and young people who haven’t built their coping strategies, it can be very difficult.

Australian studies are already showing that 1 in 4 children are experiencing higher than average levels of anxiety symptoms and that 5-10% may need specialised mental health support.

We at Big Brothers Big Sisters experience daily the increase in demand for help and are working hard to meet that need, however the numbers are overwhelming.

Give today so that all of our young people can be connected to a friend and role model that can change their life.

Our Stories

It was such a transformative and nourishing experience that enabled connection, a sense of purpose and growth, unlike any other relationship in my life. Whilst we were given the titles of mentor and mentee, the mentoring certainly went both ways! We gained a whole lot of good times, new understandings of ourselves, and a friend for life. Thank you to Big Brothers Big Sisters program for making this possible.
