Thank you for supporting Ladder in 2023.

It has been a busy year here at Ladder. In summary, we continued our work to support young people in need and we expanded our programs with the implementation of our Step Up program in Inner Gippsland and Southern New South Wales. We have worked in partnership with community organisations to ensure our young people have access to local services and opportunities, and we have recently received funding to deliver a parenting program to support parents, guardians and carers of the young people we work with.

We have worked with over 140 young people across our programs this year, and they will continue to receive support as Ladder alumni. Eighty five percent (85%) of our program participants are now in employment, education or training since graduating from Ladder’s program, and we congratulate them for this achievement.

On behalf of Ladder, thank you again for your support and partnership this year. We look forward to growing our impact and helping more young people shape their life trajectories in 2024.

- Giselle Pinto, Acting CEO Ladder
