As a beneficiary partner of febfast 2018, Brisbane Youth Service was the recipient of nearly $10,000 in funding from the organisers of febfast – YSAS (Victoria’s Youth Support + Advocacy Service).

A total of 272 people registered for febfast in Queensland, including eight of BYS’s own dedicated staff who raised over $1,000 themselves.

BYS will use these funds to provide housing and tenancy support, health services and crisis and brief intervention services for young people in Brisbane and surrounding areas.

Thank you to every person who registered and raised money to support young people to navigate life challenges and create new futures.

YSAS partner with like-minded organisations across the country to ensure young people experiencing serious disadvantage are supported by febfasters Australia-wide. By taking part in febfast, registering and asking your friends, family and colleagues to sponsor you, you are helping partner organisations such as Brisbane Youth Service further our work with young people, connecting them with the support and resources they require to access the opportunities every young person should.

febfast is Australia’s biggest annual fundraiser for young people facing serious disadvantage including homelessness and substance abuse.
