CARE LEAVERS — HOME STRETCH TRIAL

1539. Hon NICK GOIRAN to the Leader of the House representing the Minister for Child Protection:

I refer to reports of an extension to the Home Stretch trial for an extra 60 young people.

(1) Where will the expansion be based?

(2) When will the expansion commence?

(3) Will the minister table her two most recent briefing notes about the extension?

Hon SUE ELLERY replied:

I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.

Through additional resources from Lotterywest, the Home Stretch trial is being expanded to assist up to 25 extra young people over three years. The additional funding provides a total of 60 places over the three years, consisting of up to 10 places in the first year and up to 25 places in each of the second and third years.

(1) A decision on the location of the expansion has not yet been made.

(2) The expansion will commence in the first half of 2020.

(3) I table the attached briefing notes.
