We are an independent, registered charity which provides front line support to young people and individuals experiencing disadvantage, unemployment, homelessness, alcohol and other drug issues. We also help those looking to re-engage with learning and employment. We recognise the complex and varying needs of the people we work with and go above and beyond, 365 days a year, to provide pathways out of poverty.
Our youth-focussed employment services in Melbourne's outer north west exist in a hot spot of youth unemployment and related issues, such as mental health and drug use. We successfully intervene early in a pattern of neighbourhood unemployment and reliance on welfare to ensure teen school leavers return to education, participate in training and engage with secure and sustainable jobs.
Our track record is strong and in the past 10 years we have placed over 2,150 long term unemployed young people into jobs and education.
Comprised of a highly skilled multi-disciplinary team, we have the ability to provide a complete wrap around, judgement free service with a strong focus on respect, client-centred care and harm prevention.
The impact we seek enables each person to lead longer lives, have improved health, meaningful employment and a greater sense of belonging, safety and security through a holistic model of care.
