transitioning from school to independent living?

Transitioning from one phase of life to another can be a challenging time. For young adults, this means trying to set plans in motion – looking for employment, enrolling into tertiary education or living more independently.

With the help of Newcastle and Hunter Community Health services and the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), people with disabilities and complex needs can receive the support they need to live an independent and fulfilling life beyond school.

We are here to help set your future goals in motion. Our FREE downloadable School Leaver Planning Guide includes:
