Amp akweke place



Amp akweke place is a support program for young Indigenous women between 14 and 23 years who are having a baby.

The program is based in Alice Springs, Northern Territory, and provides both outreach support and residential support if the young women do not have a place to stay. Residential support is offered at a safe house for up to three months.

Amp akweke place works with young women to ensure that their health needs and those of their unborn babies are met. The program also employs family support workers who provide parenting education and support, as well as case management to all young women accessing the program.

This program is an initiative of Alice Springs Youth Accommodation and Support Services.
