The Brisbane Youth Service has been helping young people experiencing homelessness prevention in Brisbane since 1977. Last financial year, the service helped 1500 young people and supported 32,030 youth in need. In addition to homelessness, many of these young people were experiencing domestic violence. As a result, more than half of the service’s clients were experiencing homelessness and were living in unsafe, unsuitable, or inaccessible housing.

The program is a skills-based program which involves nine modules for the young person and six modules for their partner. The young people and their partners attend three modules jointly. Typically, these sessions take between three and six months to complete. For those referred by the Youth Justice service centres, Brisbane Youth Service clinicians and Forensic CYMHS practitioners deliver the skills-based program. The program is designed to provide education and support for a range of issues and can be completed in three to six months.

The program will also test 5000 Newstart and Youth Allowance recipients for illicit substances. The trial will be rolled out in Logan, south of the city. Once the program has been approved, it will be used across the rest of Brisbane. The program is free and open to the public. It also helps people who have been affected by homelessness to get out of the cold and live independently. This will help them live in a safer environment.

The Way Back program is an inner-city program delivered by the Institute for Urban Indigenous Health and Brisbane Youth Service. It provides free outreach support to children living in South Brisbane. Another program, called ALLKND, is an impact-led initiative aimed at reducing youth suicide and teaching the first-aid skills to youth. A program like this can change the lives of youth who have lost loved ones. Inmates are encouraged to attend these workshops to develop new attitudes and skills.

Queerspace Youth is a peer-led program that offers monthly support groups and regular events. Queerspace Youth also hosts arts workshops, movie nights, and capacity-building activities. It also provides mental health support workers at each event. Queerspace Youth is open to young people of all sexual orientations and gender identities. They welcome all young people to join their programs and share their knowledge with one another. You may also be interested in becoming a volunteer for the organization.

If you or someone you know is suffering from depression or anxiety, you should consider contacting Kids Helpline, a free 24-hour counselling service for Australian children. There is also a phone helpline for parents who are worried about a child or teenager who may be having a mental health issue. This service is open to children and young people and can be reached online, through email, or via a phone call. There is also a dedicated online portal for young people who provide unpaid care. The vision of this organization is to support every young carer around the world by 2030.

The Brisbane Youth Service has a diverse workforce. From nurses to medical professionals, the organisation is comprised of a wide range of jobs. The organisation’s headquarters is located in Brisbane, and it also employs several other names. In terms of compensation, casual youth workers earn up to $150 an hour, regardless of their DNA. They also receive 5 weeks of paid annual leave (pro-rata) and gratuity leave over the festive period.

The BYS is open to anyone. They conduct an initial screening assessment by phone or in person. Outreach intake is also available, where they visit people in their homes or public spaces. If you are unsure whether you might need BYS help, it may be a good idea to consult with your doctor. You may also be eligible for other benefits offered by the BYS. And don’t forget to ask your doctor about referrals for free medication.
