Today CASPA celebrates National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day 2022. This year’s theme is “My Dreaming, My Future.”

CASPA acknowledges and respects that Aboriginal and Torres strait Islander children are born into stories of their family, culture, and Country.... They carry with them the songlines of their ancestors and culture, passed down by generations. Their Dreaming is part of their history, while their futures are their own to shape.

Studies have found that over 30% of young people who have been in care are homeless within the first year of ageing out. Being left alone to care for yourself at 18 isn't expected of most young people, but for those in the care system, this can be the sudden reality.

Our Supported ...Independent Living (SIL) program prepares young people to successfully transition from Out-of-Home Care to independent living. We provide young people with accommodation, a dedicated coordinator and skilled mentors as part of our structured and individualised life skills programs. Your donations can help make a difference. https://caspa.org.au/donate/
