About Transition Support
Young people who are leaving care or youth justice don't just stop needing support. That's why the Transition Support Service (TSS) was created, to support young people through the ups and downs of life.
If you know a young person who might be eligible for the service, let them know that there is nothing wrong with asking for help and encourage them to call the Transition Support Helpline to find out how Transition Support can help them.
You can also support them to take the first step, calling the helpline with them so that they can talk through what their needs are.
If you are transitioning from Oranga Tamariki care or youth justice yourself, the Transition Support Service is here to support you on your journey.
