Program requirements for lead tenant services in Victoria

Lead tenant is an out-of-home care placement option providing medium-term accommodation and support to young people aged 16-18 years, who have been placed away from the care of their families by Child Protection.

Lead tenant programs provide a safe and semi-independent living environment in which young people are supported by one or two approved adult volunteer lead tenant/s, who provide day-to-day guidance and mature role modelling, supported by professional staff. The Department of Human Services funds Community Service Organisations (CSO) to provide lead tenant programs.

This document outlines the minimum practice requirements for lead tenant programs for CSO staff, to ensure a consistent approach to high quality service delivery.
