This fact sheet provides information on the Safe Aboriginal youth (SAY) program, which aims to reduce the rate of juvenile offending in New South Wales.
The SAY program provides two different youth support options (patrol and activities) that are implemented by non-government organisations and operate in 11 communities. The SAY patrol model provides a safe transport and outreach service for young people who are on the streets late at night. The SAY activity model provides supervised recreational and structured activities and access to food.
