The Whitelion Leaving Care Mentoring Program

The Whitelion Leaving Care Mentoring Program
(WLCMP) aims to match young people leaving the
Out-of-Home-Care system with a Mentor from
within their own community prior to their move to
independent living in order to reduce isolation and
loneliness and assist them to connect with their
community.
The WLCMP Targets
• 15-21 year olds who are preparing to leave
residential or home based care
• At risk of becoming homeless
• At risk of disconnecting from the wider
community
• Vulnerable to ‘dropping out’ of education or
training, or
• Pregnant/parenting teens who have limited or no
formal support outside the care system
