Moving On Program

The Moving On program is designed to enable young people who have been in alternative care, particularly those without supportive family or peers, to make the transition from care to independent living. The program provides accommodation for young people, where they can develop their living skills and knowledge in a safe and supportive environment. The program is seen as an early intervention with the longer-term objectives of preventing homelessness, unemployment, crime, mental illness, abuse, and social disadvantage. The target group of the program is young people aged 15 to 25 years who have been in care or in the latter stages of their protection orders and require support and mentoring. The program focuses on education, employment, health and wellbeing, social inclusion and living skills. The program is situated in Moonah Tasmania.  Service office hours are 8.30am  to 5.00pm weekdays.
