The aim of the Community Integration Program (CIP) is to train volunteers to link every child and young person in Out of Home Care (OoHC) into local sports clubs, dance classes, art clubs and more. These links create connections between the young people and their community to reduce isolation and disconnection by increasing social skills and confidence.
Young people aged 10-17 residing in out of home care settings in the southern metropolitan region that are managed by Anglicare.
The Community Integration Program is an initiative of the Department of Families, Fairness & Housing.
