Nitja Nop Yorga Ngulla Mia
“We recognise between 18-21 years old is an exceptionally vulnerable age. It’s essential that they have the support and connections they need to successfully transition to independence, when they’ve been living in the care system.” Yorganop CEO Dawn Wallam
The establishment of Home Stretch across Western Australia will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for social change that will last for genertations.
Around 85% of 18-year-olds across the country still live at home with their parents.
It makes no sense for states and territories to terminate support for foster care and other types of state care at the age of 18 for the most vulnerable young people in our society.
Yorganop is proud to be work in partnership with Anglicare WA and The Department of Communities on the Home Stretch WA Trial. We have been leading the Nitja Nop Yorga Ngulla Mia codesign with support from Anglicare WA.
The name given to the partnership between Anglicare WA and Yorganop is Nitja Nop Yorga Ngulla Mia (Our Boys and Girls are Staying Home).
