Inside Out assists young people in the child protection and youth justice system transition toward independent living.
This program seeks to empower, upskill and motivate young people between the ages of 16-19 to tackle life independently. Via an Enhanced Lead Tenant Model, housing arrangements are tailored specifically to a young person’s need to create a safe and secure place where they feel valued and have a sense of belonging.
WE ARE SEEKING EXPERIENCED YOUTH WORKERS
An exciting opportunity exists for enthusiastic and experienced youth workers to work in Concern Australia’s Enhanced Lead Tenant program.

MANY VULNERABLE CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE DO NOT RECEIVE THE HELP THEY NEED AND RISK FALLING THROUGH THE CRACKS
Mia* has a history of self-harming, as a consequence of previous trauma in her life. Since linking up with Concern Australia, Mia has been in a stable home environment for a full year, where she is feeling safe, and well connected to the lead tenants and her youth worker.
Mia has been very settled at the house, is attending school regularly, and has not self-harmed in 103 days, which is the longest she has gone for a number of years. Concern Australia’s youth worker arranged an anniversary dinner at the house to celebrate, which was a great experience for Mia.
