This program supports Aboriginal young people aged 18-21 who have left care, and young people aged 15-18 years in care, to transition to supported independent living.

What we offer

Our leaving care program supports young people to:

  • Develop a strong cultural identity
  • Connect with family and community
  • Develop independent living skills, including financial literacy
  • Assist young people to meet their goals
  • Organise safe, affordable long-term housing
  • Actively participate in the community

Leaving care workers also provide cultural advice, consultation and support to other leaving care providers.

Get started

If you would like some help to live independently after leaving care, please get in touch with your nearest office today.
