Leaving care

Leaving out-of-home care is a significant life stage so it's important you feel supported and prepared. 

A leaving care plan is a plan you start making with your caseworker when you turn 15. It's also called a 'future plan' and outlines support you can access to get a job, pay for university or TAFE, move into your own house and live independently.

Learn what goes into your leaving care plan and how to create one with your caseworker.
