Better Futures supports young people who are making the transition from care to adulthood until they reach the age of 21. The program enables young people to have an active voice in their transition planning and provides individualised supports both in-care and post-care across a range of life areas including housing, health and wellbeing, education, employment, and community and cultural connections.

Through consistent communication and outreach you will be integral in ensuring that our young people positive engage with the opportunities in presented to them.
