Support for homeless youth

Victorian Youth Week 26 June – 2 July

Our youth services team can assist with a range of support for young people, including those facing homelessness.

Being a young person is not easy – it never has been.  And just as everyone is different, so are the challenges each young person faces.

Connect Health & Community’s youth services team aims to keep young people well connected to their family and community, and ensure they have safe and stable housing.

Through the Innovative Health Services for Homeless Youth (IHSHY) program, our team works to promote health care for young people who are homeless, or at risk of homelessness.

By utilising the resources of this government funded program, our team can help respond to complex health needs and improve access to mainstream health services – ensuring their health and wellbeing is given top priority.

If you’re aged between 12 and 25, Connect Health & Community can help you and your family (if appropriate) through:

  • one-on-one counselling
  • individual casework support
  • referring you to other services
  • health and wellbeing projects and activities, some of which are run in partnership with local schools and other organisations.

You may be eligible to access our youth social work service if you are:

  • between 12 and 25 years old
  • living, working and/or attending school or college in the Bayside, Glen Eira or Kingston areas.

Still not sure? Call us on 03 9575 5333 and we will help you work it out.  You can visit us or we can meet you at school, at home, or anywhere you feel comfortable.

Call us today on 03) 9575 5333 or visit https://connecthealth.org.au/our-services-programs-groups/youth-support-services/
