Living life, their way

Young adults eager to experience independence are adding to their skills during short term stays organised by Anglicare.

Anglicare supports these young people to enjoy short stays in accommodation where they can undertake recreational activities and be involved in the day-to-day running of a household.

“It’s a chance to grow their capacity and get a feel for what it would be like to live independently,” says Anglicare’s NDIS Respite Manager.
