Young Adults

Support for Young Adults

For many families with young adult children there’s a sense of ‘What’s next’? It’s a time when life after school and growing independence are being considered.

Well-placed supports can make this time of transition easier. Our Planning Officers will help your son or daughter find the right mix of supports to assist them in their next stage of life.

Sharing the journey

Our Planning Officers can help you choose a range living and community supports tailored to suit your family’s lifestyle.

Future Planning

A world of possibilities open up when we leave school. We’ll work with you and your family to plan a range of post-school options for today and the future.

Funding

We’ll also help you explore funding options and ways of managing that funding.

Moving out of home

When it comes time to consider this milestone of independence, there’s plenty of support available. We can help you explore living options in an individual or shared setting, with support tailored to individual needs and personal goals.

Fun and friends

Our support workers make it easy for people to take part in activities that make them happy. Music, friends, sport – whatever your son or daughter’s interests, we’ll help make them a regular part of their life.

Community connections

Making connections with our local community can expand our social networks and deepen our sense of belonging. Identitywa staff can help young adults make meaningful community connections. Horse riding, photography classes or tending a community garden – that part is up to you.

Skills for life

When providing support, our staff are focused on creating opportunities that expand your son or daughter’s horizons – developing life skills, building confidence and allowing their independent spirit to grow.

Family wellbeing

There’s also a range of supports available for carers. Our Children and Adult Houses provide a homely environment for your family member to have a break for a few hours or a few days. Our support workers can also provide support in the family home.

Seven days a week, day or overnight – there are plenty of options to give you time to focus on your own needs. We’re also keen to discuss other ways we can support you in your caring role. Explore ideas with our Planning Officers.

Change of scene

A short holiday break can do wonders to lift our spirits. If you’re in need of a change of scene, we can arrange a short break for you, your whole family, or a group of families together.

We look forward to speaking with you.
