Leaving Care Program
What is the Leaving Care Program?
The Leaving Care Program supports young people with disability to transition from the Parental Responsibility of the Minister for NSW Family and Community Services to live as independently as possible and be part of their local community once they turn 18 years of age.
The Program can provide flexible support that may be linked to accommodation, to maximise the young person’s involvement in mainstream activities that improve quality of life, economic independence, health and well being.
The Program is individually funded and supports are based on an agreed individual support plan to meet the young person’s disability related needs.
Young people will be able access services that are individualised, planned, flexible and targeted to their individual and changing needs. Young people are the drivers of these plans.
