Youth off the streets Aboriginal services

 

Overview

Youth off the streets Aboriginal services aims to improve outcomes for Aboriginal children, young people and their families and communities by offering outreach and early intervention services based on proven models that are culturally appropriate and specifically tailored to meet the needs of the communities in which they operate. Aboriginal services work across the agency ensuring the rights, needs and aspirations of Aboriginal clients are considered in all activities and programs.

The service works in partnership with Aboriginal Elders, local service providers, government departments and community members with the aim of continual and lasting improvement in outcomes for the young people, families and communities involved.
