AK staff focus on engaging young women with appropriate support to address their identified needs, prior to developing a direction for a safe and suitable outcome, decreasing the risk of ongoing homelessness.
We are able to provide support, advice and referrals to meet a variety of needs.
We aim to support the re-connection with immediate family, build relationships with extended family members or where appropriate, we support young women to transition into long term, independent living arrangements.
