Supported Youth Program
You can make positive changes in your life – and you don’t have to do it alone. Get the support you need to build your confidence, improve your relationships and take part in your community.
If you’re between the ages of 10 and 18 and are looking for opportunities and a bit of direction, the Supported Youth Program can help you out.
This service can provide you with support, counselling and mediation with your family if you need it.
There are several ways you can get involved with education, training and community in a non-judgemental and safe environment

- An unstable home environment
- Disengagement with school
- Experimentation with alcohol or other drugs
- Difficulties fitting in socially
- Being at risk of Child Protection or Youth Justice intervention.
