Youth support


We're here to provide help and home

Every year, we help young Queenslanders who can't live at home through our specialist youth programs.

What we do

Our practical youth support programs are located across Queensland and are specially designed to help vulnerable young people build confidence, resilience, life skills, and thrive. 

After-care support

We help young people approaching 18 work towards successfully leave care by supporting them through innovative programs like Next Step Plus and Youth CONNECT.

Residential care (out-of-home care)

We're one of Queensland's largest residential care providers for young people aged up to 17, providing stable and supportive homes to those who need this most.

A day in the life of a Youth Worker

Hear from some of our dedicated Youth Workers about a typical day in the life in this challenging but rewarding career. The team members describe the supportive team culture they work in, and how they navigate some of the challenges of working with young people who have experienced significant trauma.
