We are pleased to announce that we have been named as a finalist for the ‘Innovation in Child Protection-Metropolitan’ award category in the inaugural South Australian Child Protection Awards!
Community Living Options expanded into Children Services in early 2021 to support children and young people in a residential care setting. We have a fantastic and passionate team led by Nicole Gent, who played an integral role in developing our Children Services team.
The Children Services team have a strong focus on children and young people as individuals and supports their dreams and choices, whilst focusing on developing skills by ensuring all that we do has purpose and positively impacts their ability to engage successfully with school, community and loved ones.
Since January 2021, the team has grown from a team of 1 to 52, and the team is continuing to expand as we expand our services. We are actively involved in working groups addressing the needs of young people leaving care and have joined Children and Families South Australia (CAFSA) to encourage industry change.
We look forward to continuing to provide quality person centred supports for children and young people.
