Teaching Life Skills
We need to learn how to cook, and how to use a washing machine, because that's what adults do. - Jillian, WCF Young Person
Supported Independent Living Program
Our Supported Independent Living Program supports and cares for young people aged 15 - 17 years and focuses on teaching practical life skills that they will need to be successful. These skills include cooking, home duties, financial assistance and budgeting, career development and building health and positive relationships; all important and necessary life skills.
These young people will be referred to us through the Department of Communities and Justice, and with support from a House Parent and the program, they will transition into semi-independent living or leaving care.
