Relationship-based practice and service system expertise to support young people transitioning from out-of-home care in Victoria

19 March 2020

This report presents evaluation findings of an out-of-home care transition program from the western suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria.

This report has been published by Monash University.

The report presents an evaluation of The Salvation Army's Continuing Care program, which provides relationship-based support to assist the planning, preparation and support needs of young people during their transition from out-of-home care to independent living.

The evaluation found that the program's use of consistent and trusting relationships and networking helped address potential barriers to successful transition, such as anxiety about leaving care and limited communication between different support services.
