BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS AUSTRALIA IS A CHILD SAFE ORGANISATION

 

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.
