The report documents progress against our organisational strategic goals and showcases our mentoring pathways unlocking the potential of young people aged 7 to 17.
We thank all our volunteers, mentors, donors and staff who helped us start something BIG in 2014!
Changing perspectives. Changing lives
Big Brothers Big Sisters helps young people who face serious adversity – those who have little opportunity to develop positive and supportive relationships with adults. Many who are hungry for friendship, guidance and acceptance.
We facilitate meaningful, monitored mentoring matches between adult volunteers (Bigs) and children living with disadvantage (Littles), ages 7 through 17.
By positively changing the course of a young person's life, Big Brothers Big Sisters know we can build resilience and a sense of self-worth that helps them to stay at school, improve their relationships with families and their community which in turn can lead to long-term community benefits like an increase in school retention; school and community safety; and greater employment opportunities.
By connecting a disadvantaged child to a positive role model we can break the cycle of disadvantage.

Could your staff team turn $1500 into $10,000 for charity.
