Overview

The Central Australian Youth Link Up Service (CAYLUS) mission is to support community initiatives that improve quality of life, and address alcohol and other drug use issues affecting young people. CAYLUS works with communities to reduce supply of harmful substances as well as to reduce demand, with a particular focus on preventing volatile substance use.

CAYLUS programs are adapted to the needs of the region and include:

CAYLUS also works with remote communities to make high risk substances harder to access and provides resources and information to retailers on low aromatic fuel and managing volatile substances.
