The support Brisbane Youth Service receives from the community makes a huge difference to what we can achieve. On 14 September we were very fortunate to have a large team of staff from Lendlease helping to renovate Sandgate House.
Sandgate House is one of our fully supported accommodation services. Brisbane Youth Service has three programs working with young people from the ages of 15 to 18. In these 24-7 supervised housing models, youth workers provide case management and emotional support to meet the most essential and immediate needs of the young people.
The Lendlease team spent a day working hard to paint the interior of the house and landscape the garden and driveway. Lendlease does this as part of their Community Day each year. The idea behind Community Day is that it brings health and happiness to Lendlease employees as well as helping the communities where they live and work.
