Supporting Newcastle Youth
Newcastle Youth Accommodation Services Ltd (NYASL) provides an early prevention, transitional program to assist local youth from troubled homes within the Newcastle/Lake Macquarie community to gain essential livings skills to be self-sufficient, whilst receiving support from caseworkers.
This month we have provided a Foundation grant of $19,000 to NYASL for three professional development programs for approximately 300 caseworkers as well as further development of their ongoing ‘Living Skills’ program provided to the youth.
The Living Skills program assists young people to successfully transition from supported care to independent living. The workshops cover organisational skills, decision making, financial accountability and goal setting around education and employment.
