Housing Support

Brisbane Youth Service is a registered Tier 3 housing provider under the National Regulatory System - Community Housing. We assist homeless young people and young families to find and maintain safe,
stable accommodation and to develop the skills needed to maintain their own
property. Every young person has different housing needs. Brisbane Youth Service
endeavours to find appropriate housing for young people and young families
experiencing homelessness or at risk of becoming homeless.

With a vision to provide ‘New Futures for Young People’, BYS has been operating in Fortitude Valley since 1977.  In that time we have helped tens of thousands of young people (aged 12-25) experiencing homelessness or at risk of becoming homeless, and their accompanying children.

We assist vulnerable young people to find and maintain appropriate housing, address physical & mental health issues and establish successful relationships and support networks.

Housing support services include:

  • Assistance for young people and young families with finding housing
  • Assistance with establishing a new home (help with furniture and general household items)
  • Teaching young people independent living skills, how to budget and how to maintain their tenancy in order to help them move on to long term housing
  • Crisis, brief and long term individual support
