Futures Planning and Support

The Futures Planning and Support model

Futures Planning and Support offers a tiered model of support to young people 17 – 24 years who have been in out of home care. It offers additional support, above the universal support already provided, to young people with higher, more complex needs to support them to achieve goals they have identified.

The model offers three levels of support according to needs:

  • Connections – working with OOHC and Aftercare services to link young people to universal services and entitlements like TILA and health care
  • Futures Coaching – mentoring and advocacy to help young people achieve their goals
  • Intensive case work – the highest level of support, to address complex issues like mental health and substance addiction
  • Brokerage – pooled brokerage funds are also available to help care leavers achieve their goals

The Future System – pillars of the reform

Our vision is to create a coordinated service system that delivers evidence-based, wraparound supports for children and families to transform their life outcomes.
