Supported accommodation for young adults to independent living
April 10, 2023
While transitioning to adulthood can be exciting and bring more independence, it can also be a time where you need support the most.
Through our supported accommodation and Children Services, our experienced and professional team ensure you have access to the right supports that will improve your living situation and quality of life.
Passionate about child safety and protection, co-founder and director of operations, Cherryl Joseph, introduced Children Services to Aspire Hub to help young adults.
“I have more than 16 years’ experience in the care industry across a number of organisations, where I learned that there’s not enough support out there for children transiting from residential care,” Cherryl said.
“That’s why we added Children Services to the Aspire Hub suite of services, to offer children and young adults a home, and the ability to be supported to learn essential life skills.”
What are Aspire Hub’s children’s services?
Through our range of supported accommodation services, our purpose is to provide children and young people with disability access to quality services that will improve their living situation and their families’.
We also support young people transitioning into adulthood and independent living, which includes advocacy, education, skills building and supports with accessing adult care and applicable fundings.
“If they are transitioning into independent living or adult care with Aspire Hub, they will have access to the same support team and accommodation to ensure a smooth and stress-free transition,” Cherryl said.
In addition to disability housing and accommodation, Aspire Hub also support young people transitioning into adulthood and independent living with our range of services:
- Skills building
- Support accessing adult care and applicable funding
“To ensure a smooth and stress-free journey into independent living or adult care, we guarantee you will be matched with a consistent support team for the entire process,” Cherryl said.
Who may need supported accommodation for young adults?
Supported accommodation for young people is designed to provide a safe, inclusive, and supportive living environment that can meet the unique needs of each individual.
Supported accommodation for young adults can be beneficial for a variety of individuals who may require additional support and care as they transition into adulthood.
Some examples of young people who may benefit from supported accommodation in Australia include:
- Young people with disabilities: This may include individuals with physical disabilities, intellectual disabilities, sensory impairments, or other special needs that impact their ability to live independently or require additional support with daily living tasks, social interactions, and other aspects of life.
- Young people experiencing homelessness: This can include youth experiencing homelessness due to various circumstances, such as family breakdown, financial difficulties, or other challenges, and require safe and stable accommodation with support to help them access education, employment, and other opportunities.
- Young people leaving out-of-home care: This may include young adults who have been in foster care, residential care, or other out-of-home care arrangements and are transitioning to independent living, but may require ongoing support and accommodation to ensure a successful transition.
- Young people with mental health challenges: This may include individuals with mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression, or other mental health challenges that impact their ability to live independently, and who require support and accommodations to manage their mental health and well-being.
- Young people with a history of trauma or abuse: This may include individuals who have experienced trauma, abuse, or other adverse experiences and who require a safe and supportive living environment that can provide trauma-informed care and support.
- Young people with other complex needs: This may include individuals with other unique needs or circumstances that require additional support, such as those who have been involved in the justice system, have substance use issues, or require assistance with education, employment, or life skills development.
“As part of our children’s services at Aspire Hub, we consult with relevant service providers, youth organisations, and professionals to determine the most appropriate supported accommodation options for young people, based on their individual circumstances and needs,” Cherryl said.
