Branching Out is a dedicated ASN Youth Project for Youths aged 14- 19 years of age and ASN Parent Carers. Using a youth work approach, Branching Out provides opportunities for young people to build confidence, access peer support, and engage with other young people in their own space. The goal of Branching Out is to support young people and their families with preparedness for transition out of school and in to post and out of school activities and opportunities; and for young people to have increased independence from their families for work, learning, and leisure time. Branching Out takes a family centred approach – and with parental engagement will also work to support parents and families to be ready to support their young person to become more independent as they transition into adulthood.

To build capacity, share knowledge and increase meaningful employment, training and support for the Additional Support Needs community. To better understand support available and build economic development that promotes inclusive employment
