Who is it for?
Whether you are preparing to leave Out of Home Care, or you have left your care arrangements and are transitioning into independent living, the Aftercare Resource Centre (ARC) can provide you with support and information that will enable you to start the process of independent living effectively.
The support may be for housing referral, education, budgeting, parenting, or referral to other appropriate agencies as required. We can also help you to access your care file and provide support while you read it.
What will it be like?
When you visit ARC you will see a professional caseworker with experience in aftercare
issues. They will talk through your current situation and provide help where needed.
Our services are confidential and participation is voluntary.
- Clarify your problems.
