Youth Support Program – Paroo Shire Council 

Youth at Risk and Addressing Volatile Substance Misuse services have been refocused into a single youth support approach to ensure they more responsively meet the needs of young people, particularly those who are most vulnerable.

Youth Support services are targeted specifically at young people aged 12 to 18 years of age who are at risk of: disconnection from their family/community/support networks; disengagement from school, training and/or employment; harm, including self-harm; and who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

Youth support services focus on four key results, which are to help young people:

  • connect to positive family support
  • get a job or engage in training or education
  • lead a healthy and violence-free life
  • have a safe, stable place to live

I you have any of these issues or question you can contact
