Better Journeys.

Our Better Journeys stream of work is centred on designing pathways so that people can avoid experiencing homelessness or be supported to rapidly exit homelessness.

Our current challenge question is:

How do we make sure that every 16-24 year old transitioning from custody or out of home care in South Australia has a home and a supportive community where they can thrive?

The challenge question is designed to push creative thinking in an area that we know is difficult to tackle and requires systems change. It provides our social lab teams with clarity and focus as they work over a series of sprints to develop solutions. Our social lab for Better Journeys consists of three small teams each working on a different aspect of the challenge question.

Better Journeys Solutions

Our Better Journeys lab teams are in the early stages of developing, testing and iterating solutions. Work from the lab teams includes;

First Nations Inclusions Principles

A set of guiding principles to create a culturally safe environment for our Better Journeys work.

Systems Navigator

An exploration of a ‘systems navigator’ function to improve outcomes for young people exiting care who otherwise experience confusion or barriers to getting the support and services they need.

In My Home

A collaborative report that outlines a case for social impact investing for continuing to support young people aged 16 – 25 transitioning into independent living.

Ready Transitions

An exploration of potential system changes to better prepare young people for transitions and safeguards needed to avoid homelessness.
