Youth Support Services

PCYC’s Youth Support Service provides holistic, individualised, practical, and case management support to at-risk young people (12 -21 years of age). Support can be extended to 8–11-year-olds if they have a sibling already engaged in the program. Youth Support Service is provided in 11 locations across Queensland. 

Our youth support workers can help a young person to: 

  • connect with family and community
  • find safe, stable places to live
  • engage in education and/or training
  • engage in employment
  • maintain physical & mental health; and 
  • access other support agencies & specialist services based on their interests and needs

 Young at-risk people are eligible for support under this program if they are: 

  • homeless or at risk of homelessness
  • not at school and not working or at risk of disengaging
  • engaged with Youth Justice or Child Safety or at risk of it
  • disconnected from family and community; and/or 
  • in need of support with physical/mental health

The Youth Support Services are tailored to the individual young person’s needs.  While it is not time-limited, it is purposeful. It works towards achieving goals to enable young people to develop skills and resilience to lead healthy and fulfilling lives. 

The service is provided in 11 PCYC locations across Queensland.
