Trusted Support is Making a Huge Difference for Dylan

Dylan came over to Cam Can in 2019 with many challenges.

He was raised in the care of the CEO.

He had no other option other than return to the care of his mother after leaving care at 18 years old.

Dylan had limited understanding of money.

Cam Can were brought in at the same time as the state Guardian and Trustee were appointed.

Dylan was residing with his mother in Harvey where he was subjected to physical, emotional and financial abuse.  He refused to engage with any supports at first however, over time he built some great relationships with his support workers.

We assisted Dylan to transition out of the home in Harvey and into a Host Family arrangement.  We had many difficult times as Dylan adjusted which unfortunately included missing person’s reports.

Dylan is now living successfully with supports in his own unit in Bunbury.  He has very little melt downs and is absolutely kicking goals.

Dylan could not read or write, however, he has worked hard with his support team to develop his reading and writing skills and after a few attempts has been successful in gaining his Learners’ Permit.

Just another reminder of the wonderful flow-on effect of what you both (Marc and Anthea) have created.
