“There’s a huge amount of young people that struggle to get out of bed everyday that we need to go visit at home and spend months of engaging and focusing on their well being. These are the young people we don’t get funded for, because they don’t meet the requirements of the system of enrollment and attendance. Schools get funded on young people who are enrolled and attend – and that really works for some young people – these aren’t necessarily the young people who access Flexible Learning Centres”

– Network Principal.
