In this episode, we talk about free education for young care leavers in SA. There’s a bunch of great info in this podcast. So you might need to listen to it a few times or come back to it when it's relevant.
We think your best bet is to call the uni of your choice and ask to speak to a person who can advise about scholarships.
If you are leaving care soon, or have left recently, Post Care Support Services are here to help! They can support you with stuff like housing and grant applications, FOI requests, referrals, life skills, brokerage counselling, mental health and other issues
GOM Central is funded by the Department of Child Protection and delivered by Relationships Australia South Australia’s Post Care Support Services. Straight Up is hosted by Brooke and Zhane.

This podcast was created on Kaurna and Peramangk Country. We wish to acknowledge the Kaurna and Peramangk peoples, and all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians; their spiritual, physical, emotional, mental and economic connection to the Land and Seas. We acknowledge the original custodians of Australia and in doing so understand that their inherent Cultural and Spiritual beliefs continue to sustain the living People of each region.
