Youth Network

Sir David Martin Foundation has commenced development of a National Youth Network of Aftercare workers to help break the cycle of addiction and connect more young people with community, education and employment pathways.

An Aftercare expansion

In partnership with Mission Australia and based on an evidence-based model of care at Triple Care Farm, in NSW Southern Highlands, Youth Network is an expansion of Aftercare programs across five sites in Australia.

Drug and Alcohol Youth Service (DAYS) in East Perth is the first location to start the program in June 2022, thanks to the generous support of the Minderoo Foundation, McCusker Foundation and the Neilson Foundation.

Other sites include Dubbo and Batemans Bay.

Aftercare

Aftercare is recommended as an effective wraparound program and is fundamental to vulnerable young people’s ongoing health and wellness. The
program is designed to empower and build independence – to transition young people back into the community, post rehabilitation. While the young person is in residential rehabilitation, they meet their Aftercare worker and set their goals.

By the end of the program, they have a trusted support network, allowing them to return to the community and helping to reduce the incidence of relapse.

Having access to a youth worker to support their connection with family, community, and re-engagement with education and employment, helps to set the young people up for a better future.

Isabel said “I’m Scared”

A past student, Isabel came to Triple Care Farm Detox having tried to get off drugs before, “I just need help to detox so that I can get back to school but I can’t do it on my own and I’m scared to go anywhere else” she said.

Donate and help young, vulnerable Australians break the cycle of addiction and have hope for a brighter future.
