Choices and connections: the better pathways service approach for young people with disabilities

30 Jul 2009
Description

The South Australian Premier, The Hon. Mike Rann, sought advice from the Social Inclusion Board on new and effective ways to support young people with a disability to transition to the post-school environment.
The Board has concluded that young people with a disability most 'at risk' of not making a transition from school to activities are those who are:
·  likely to be early school leavers;
·  studying although not able to move onto employment;
·  unemployed, temporarily ill or injured and not engaging in learning or employment;
·  receiving a Disability Support Pension who are not connected to developmental activity; and
·  receiving the Newstart allowance and have done so for a considerable time.
The report presents 19 recommendations which provide a blueprint for a comprehensive, joint approach that enables greater participation.
