- Given the large numbers of young people, it is best to call the Valley Hub before attending and make note of the hours services are available.
- Accompanying children are welcome, but child-friendly rooms are limited – families may be referred to the Young Women and Young Families team at Stones Corner.
Young people in crisis often find it difficult to get to the Service Hub, so we provide support to young people off-site as well.
Public space outreach covers Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley and CBD. It aims to improve access to services and to minimise harm young people may experience while sleeping rough.
