Home Stretch and Better Futures

The expansion of the Better Futures and Home Stretch programs to young people on permanent care orders will commence with Home Stretch support being available from 1 July 2021 for those turning 18 years of age.

An interim process to connect young people and carers to their local Better Futures provider will be implemented while a long term approach is developed.

The interim process will prioritise information provision and access to support to young people based on what date they turn 18 years of age. Those turning 18 between July to September 2021 will be the first group progressed.

Below is a link to current information on the programs:

At this stage we are asking people to wait for information to be made available before getting in touch with PCA Families, DFFH or Better Futures providers. Referrals to Home Stretch will be gradually progressed when we have the appropriate processes in place and information available. No eligible young people will miss out on support. We thank everyone for their patience.

We will continue to provide further updates on our News page or on our new website page "Home Stretch and Better Futures" under our Support and Services section.
