YOUTH BLOOM Transition Services
YOUTH BLOOM Transition Services is designed to help young people in care and beyond to learn to be independent in a healthy, fun and safe way.
This support program is available for young people, aged between 15 and 21 who live at the Gold Coast or in Logan, to ensure they get support through the early stages of adulthood.
This program aims to provide support as early as possible and avoid negative environmental and personal influences on young people leaving care once they turn 18.
Supports are ideal for those with common needs such as absence of formal support, underdeveloped skills, lack of community engagement, right through to more complex needs including autism spectrum disorder (ASD), depression, anxiety, alcohol and other drug (AOD) issues, intellectual impairment and physical disability.
Other areas we can assist with:
- Court attendance and access to legal support
- Mental health and wellbeing issues
- Referral to alcohol and other drugs (AOD) services
- Anger management/stress management
- Education and traineeship
- Group activities
- Individual art and craft activities
- Physical activities/hiking/swimming/camping
- Free items such as electronics, furniture, clothing and sport equipment through the GIVIT charity organisation.
What to expect
