Help support young care leavers via Youth Footprints
Enjoy the hospitality and refinement of Rymill House Estate as you experience South Australia’s most famous motor racing event.
500 Rymill House offers you the choice of first class multi-day, single day and single session packages for you and your guests within an exclusive and private trackside location.
All funds raised from this prestigious event will help provide valuable support to vulnerable young care leavers in South Australia via the Youth Footprints program.
What Is Youth Footprints?
Youth Footprints is a Rymill House Foundation and AnglicareSA partnership committed to supporting young people who’ve turned 18 years and are leaving state care. This program helps them transition from dependence on state accommodation and support to so-called self sufficiency.
In South Australia, the State Government has no obligation to support young care leavers beyond the age of 18. With interrupted schooling and care arrangements throughout their childhood, many care leavers exit with limited independent living skills, into poverty and experiences of homelessness, crime and substance misuse.
Youth Footprints will leverage community resources, relationships and goodwill to invest in and better support young care leavers by creating effective and replicable transition models for young care leavers.
How Does it Work?
Combining a Housing First approach with individualised supports that aim to strengthen a young person’s independent living skills, the program will provide an effective transition model for young care leavers.
Through mentoring, education, employment opportunities and community connections, Youth Footprints will help young care leavers successfully transition to independent living.
At AnglicareSA we’re passionate about improving the outcomes for young care leavers, and that’s why we’re partnering with the Rymill House Foundation for this important initiative.
