Tailored information at your fingertips
Resolve was built specifically for care leavers and provides original information, advice and links to relevant services for the young people we work with. Just a click away, it has advice about identity, relationships, health, education and employment, finance, housing and accommodation, and living skills.
When Resolve is first opened, users are prompted to enter information about their identity. The app uses this information to intuitively direct users to the most relevant information. For example, by identifying as Aboriginal in Resolve, the young Aboriginal person can access information about specialised housing, employment and financial services.
It has activities and questions to encourage self-reflection.
Young people can also set themselves goals and it reminds them to celebrate when they are achieved.
Volunteering can make us healthier and happier because it allows us to boost our sense of achievement, expand our social networks and learn new skills - while giving something back. Join more than six million Australians who volunteer in our community - there is a role to suit you.
