Youth Beat TAS COVID-19 Update

Due to the restrictions put in place to keep our communities safe, Youth Beat is looking at other ways to deliver outreach. Rather than our usual community BBQ engagement, we are now offering individual case management support to young people that may need additional assistance at this time.

If you are a young person, or know of a young person, in need of support please contact Youth Beat on 0491 147 589 or email YouthBeatTas@missionaustralia.com.au

Youth Beat operates mainly in Derwent Valley, Clarendon Vale and Rokeby and reaches out to vulnerable young people across Southern Tasmania. We offer a wide range of services/support to young people, identifying/addressing anti-social behaviour, drug/alcohol misuse/abuse, referral and intervention for young people in crisis and assistance with accessing additional services and social support networks. We foster strong relationships with police, community groups and local support services. Youth Beat offers interactive activities based on our clients needs and interests.
