YSAS’s Wilum Supported Accommodation Program supports young people aged 16 to 20 who, having completed alcohol and/or other drug withdrawal, wish to remain abstinent and are in need of accommodation.
Wilum helps the young people develop independent living skills, including goal setting and access to therapeutic groups. Staff encourage reintegration with the wider community through education and employment. Young people can stay for up to 12 months
Wilum has eight properties across the inner north-west of Melbourne. Two of the properties have Lead Tenants.
Referrals to Wilum can be made:
- by individual young people or family members
- through YSAS Community Programs
- through community alcohol and other drug services, GPs, primary and mental health services, youth justice and homelessness services.
