The Detour program is an early intervention program for young people aged 12-24 years and their families or significant adults. Delivered in partnership with Melbourne City Mission, Uniting and Kids Under Cover, the initiative aims to address potential homelessness in young people by providing intensive wrap-around coaching support services by assisting with individualised intensive support packages. Packages include support for families aiming to improve the lives of individuals and the community as a whole. The program aims to provide access to early intervention and prevention services, implement a new approach that helps young people develop the skills and resources they need to achieve their potential, ensures young people commit to an integrated plan that creates a pathway to successful independence, and connects young people to their families, community and the right support at the right time.
