We support homeless and vulnerable young people (aged 12-25 years) and their children, to secure and maintain housing. We provide emergency support and a range of services to assist young people to address physical and mental health issues, establish successful relationships and support networks and access pathways to education and employment.
Homeless, hopeless, and alone, with a physical disability affecting less than 1% of the population – James didn’t think there was reason to hope before coming to BYS.Everyone at BYS was a friend who helped me see that I can hope things will be better and believe it.
Finishing high school was a challenge for young mum Zalie, whose willingness to accept gentle supports led to renewed control and independence.I thank the gentle, caring nature of the youth workers who have helped me immensely, taking some stress off my shoulders and guiding me through difficult situations.
BYS continues to be inspired by the innovative ways organisations and the community choose to support us. With your help, we can make an even bigger impact in the lives of vulnerable young people.
