At Anglicare Victoria our focus is on transforming the futures of children and young people, families and adults. Our work is based on three guiding pillars, Prevent, Protect, Empower. We offer a comprehensive network of services and seek to ensure the provision of high quality services that will bring about significant improvements in the life experience of the young people, children and families/caregivers with whom we work.

KEYS will take a new approach to working with highly vulnerable young people, who will receive a range of support, treatment and other therapeutic interventions and be actively assisted and supported to transition into a form of home-based care, or move directly to independent living.
KEYS will be delivered from two sites, one in Dandenong and one in Noble Park. Each site will work with eight young people at any given time, with four young people living in an KEYS house and four who have transitioned through the live-in component of the service to home based care arrangements or independent living.
Implementation of KEYS will be underpinned by the following principles:
