Leaving Care / After Care

Designed for young people preparing to leave or who have left statutory care. Young people requiring the support of the Leaving Care worker may be provided with assistance in obtaining accommodation, educational and career opportunities, emotional and practical support and legal advice.

The mentoring aspect of the program aims to provide young people leaving care with the opportunities to interact with adults in community settings and to promote personal relationships that relieve the issues associated with social isolation. The program provides volunteer mentors to young people preparing to leave or who have left state care who will guide and support young people through their transition from care to independent living.
