Intensive Residential Service
Our Intensive Residential Program provides support and accommodation to young people in significant crisis, who require a measurably higher level of specialised trauma-informed care. The program aim is to provide specialised care in a way that enables young people to be stabilised and move forward into a less intrusive care arrangement so they are able to achieve their full potential.
The Intensive Residential Program also focuses on exploring suitable family options for our young people in Residential Care. This work has included the development of specific support plans in partnership with Family and Community Services to assist in young people successfully transitioning home. These plans also include ways that Allambi Care will continue to support young people and their families after they return home for a better chance of ongoing permanency.
Supported Independent Living
Our Supported Independent Living Program is an integrated accommodation program that aims to prepare and support young people in making a smooth transition from out of home care to independent living, self-reliance and adulthood through the provision of public or private rental accommodation, case management and support services for up to 24 months. The goals of the program are:
- To prevent young people transitioning from statutory care to homelessness services
- To maximise young people's capacity to live independently in the community
- To improve social, economic and health outcomes for care leavers
