SAF continues to support our young people in every way we can

Aftercare

At Stretch-A-Family we believe that relationships are one of the most important things in the life of children and young people. Children and young people in Out-of-Home-Care leave care at 18 years of age and that is where the funding, relationships and support generally stops. Research has shown that Australian children on average don’t move out the family home until they are at least 25 years old, so why should this be any different for our children and young people?

Any young person that has ever been under the care of SAF can continue to access support from our agency. We will support our young adults to access advice and advocacy across a large range of topics. This includes housing, budgeting, general living skills, referrals to counselling or drug and alcohol support services, accessing their leaving care plan, financial issues and everything in between. We provide a nurturing safety net and engage young adults in their community with a focus on improving their resilience and independence towards skill development, education and employment.
