Responding to the needs of young people will ensure continued, effective outcomes.
What is Aftercare?
Aftercare is the support provided to young people (for up to 6 months) once they complete Triple Care Farm Residential rehab (TCF). Through face-to-face meetings, phone calls, emails and visits, young people are given the support they need to find their feet back in the community.
Moving from the farm to independence involves many changes which can be challenging and isolating.
Aftercare supports young people by creating, strengthening and maintaining newly established support networks around the young person within their community. These support networks include family, peers, community-based agencies, Mission Australia services and others necessary for the young people leaving TCF Residential Rehab. Their specific needs are identified through individual case plans.
The Aftercare Program is one of the key drivers of long-term change in the lives of young people supported at TCF.
Thanks to the generosity of the community, TCF is now able to expand this key part of the overall program to ensure that all students continue to get the support they need when they step back into the community.
TCF will now employ an additional full time Aftercare Worker to support an increased number of young people at the conclusion of the residential treatment. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, Sir David Martin Foundation has committed to funding the expansion for the next three years.
"I had no place to go home to when I finished rehab. Thanks to my carer in Aftercare, I was linked in with some accomodation. I was able to find my feet and re-build my life and Todd was only ever a phone call away."
