WHAT WE DO
Youturn commenced providing services in 1989 to help youth homelessness in the Noosa Region. While over the following 30 years our organisation has grown, branching into other important community services and expanding our geographic reach, young and vulnerable people remain at the heart of everything that we do.
Young and vulnerable people are at the heart of everything we do. Our support services fall within four core focus areas which are child safety, homelessness, mental health and suicide prevention.
Providing children and young people with safe and caring environments
Supporting people who have a housing need or are experiencing homelessness
Supporting young and vulnerable people to manage their mental health in the future
Supporting people and communities bereaved or impacted by suicide
HOW WE WORK
Our Services are described by the sectors in which they operate. This allows us to celebrate the reputation and strength of our programs within their respective sectors. It also allows us to respect the different needs of each focus area, the importance of staying ahead of emerging models of care and changing state and federal government policies and priorities
Each of our focus areas are led by experts in their respective fields. This is essential to ensure our services are best practice and evidence based and that we comply with the complex regulatory environments that face our front-line teams. Through all the diversity and complexity, our services are positioned on integrity, transparency and trust.
