- A furnished room within a household
- Help with accessing and engaging with education and employment
- Support to access benefits the young person is entitled to
- Support to develop independent living skills such as budgeting, cooking etc.
- Help with accessing specialist support
- Support to gain skills and confidence to sustain a tenancy via the Resettlement Passport program and access stable move-on accommodation
