Leaving home

Leaving home is one of the most important decisions you will ever make.

The best time to leave home is when you:

  • Feel ready
  • Have support to move out
  • Have made a plan

It's not a good idea to rush into leaving home. Ideally, you should stay with your family until you can move out in a planned way.
