Statewide Training to Help Young People in Care Plan for Their Future

ACWA will be delivering a series of workshops across NSW in the coming six months aimed at equipping out-of-home care caseworkers with the critical skills they need to effectively support and prepare the young people they work with for a life beyond care.

It is universally acknowledged by child welfare professionals that ‘leaving care’ is a vulnerable and difficult transition period for young people. At the same time, supports and services are often ‘thin on the ground’.

Our CCWT team’s one-day Transition From Care: Planning to Leave Care workshop will provide caseworkers with a range of effective practice strategies on how they can best support young people in their journey from care to independent living, and ultimately reach their full potential as adults.

Starting in Dubbo on May 24, this workshop will be held in a further eight locations around NSW. Click on the relevant link below to obtain venue details and times:
