The Living Learning program is Melbourne City Mission’s first outcomes funded program under a Social Impact Bond (SIB) structure. The Victorian Government’s Partnership Addressing Disadvantage (PAD) Implementation Agreement (IA) outlines the program and the funding model for Living Learning. Social Impact Bonds are a relatively new funding model in Australia and Victoria.
Living Learning works with young people who are persistently not in employment, in education or training (NEET) and who have a mental health condition. Through the supports offered by Living Learning, the aim of the program is to re-engage young people into the Hester Hornbrook Academy, to stabilise their mental health and work with them over three years to achieve education outcomes and subsequently cost savings for government.
