Becoming a Big Buddy

Every boy without someone to call Dad deserves a positive male role model to spend time with. In just a few hours each week, Big Buddies help boys grow confidence, self-worth and the ability to make better life choices. If you'd like to make a difference, apply to become a Big Buddy today.

Take the first step

When you become a Big Buddy you are making a huge difference to the life of a boy whose Dad is not around. But in supporting him, you are bettering the life of his family, community and even his future.

Our Big Buddies are kind-hearted men of good character, who give their time graciously. Our Little Buddies cherish this regular time spent with them, and mums and caregivers report boys are happier and more confident as a result.

It's all based on a simple philosophy of being there; our Big Buddies simply show up, spend time, and come back.

Big Buddy changes lives

"Big Buddy is definitely one of the best things that has happened in my life. It has given me a new direction. Even though I have children of my own, this is a whole new way of looking at life and one that I totally embrace and enjoy. I couldn't recommend it more, to all men out there ..."   Big Buddy Gavin Sheehan
