Key Assets WA strives to continually improve outcomes for children and young people with disabilities. We are driven by our vision to make a positive and lasting difference in the lives of children, young people, young adults and their families.
We have a strong family focus, sound knowledge and expertise in working with children and young people.
HOW WE WORK
Key Assets provides high quality service to individuals and their families directed by person-centred goal planning and delivered through Specialist Staff such as Social Workers, Ability Carers and trained Support Workers. Your Social Worker helps you develop your goal plan and identify what supports you may need to live a good life. Together, we work as a team, creating an action plan that explains how we will support you in achieving your goals. Key Assets is NDIS approved.
HOW WE DO THIS – ABILITY CARE
Key Assets Ability Carers can be a family, a couple or a single person. Ability Carers assist young people to navigate the pathways to independence and adulthood (Transition Program). They provide accommodation and short-breaks to young people with a disability in a homely environment. This is achieved through a well-thought-out matching process with a young person and potential Ability Carers. Where required, biological family can be involved in building and supporting the service.
The Transition Program helps young people with a disability to get ready for independent living. Young people 16 years and over can access the program and be supported in learning skills in cooking, budgeting, vocational and career building opportunities, developing and building social networks, transport training, fostering self-esteem and self-determination and increasing community participation. Other supports offered are short-breaks and camps, family contact support, vocational support and steps to employment support.
Individual and family goal planning and review
We help young people evidence their outcomes through person-centred goal planning which is reviewed annually. This process involves assisting the individual to identify thier goals and encourages participation from the persons natural support networks.
Young People Leaving Care
We offer services to young people and adults and are ideally placed to offer a home to young people with disability as they transition out of the CEO’s care and into adulthood.
