We’re here to Stride. It’s an exciting time to be part of Stride. You may have noticed we’ve recently changed our name from Aftercare to Stride.
We began simply to help people find a place to live and work, now we’re leaders in early childhood intervention and working to expand our youth and adult specialist services. That’s meant our brand has evolved too.
Stride reflects our focus on the prevention and treatment of mental health conditions – building on the work we do with families and communities to roll out more evidence-based services.
Stride Kids provides a safe place, and offers support and services to children aged 0-11 years and their families and carers, focused on improving their mental health and social and emotional wellbeing.
