Thank you to our incredibly generous donors for choosing to support homeless and at-risk youth at what can be a very challenging and lonely time.
We smashed our $20,000 target and thanks to our donors, at least 20 more young people now have a place to call home!

The University of Queensland has put together a short video thanking donors for supporting key projects including BYS's pop-up dental clinic.
The clinic offers young people the opportunity to have simple dental procedures like check ups, fillings, cleans at the Brisbane Youth Service Hub in Fortitude Valley. Our next clinic will run from 12th -16th March and we are taking bookings now.
UQ, with help from some generous donors, helped us establish the clinic last year and the feedback from young people has been very positive.

Febfast is a fun, annual fundraising event which supports Brisbane Youth Service and helps raise funds for vulnerable young people.
This year we are encouraging friends and supporters of Brisbane Youth Service to get behind febfast by registering for febfast. The idea is very simple – you give up sugar or alcohol or something else of your choosing during February and get sponsorship for doing it. Funds raised will come to BYS to support vulnerable young people. Febfast is also a great opportunity for you and your organisation to “pause for a cause” and get healthy during February.
