Youturn ensures that we place young people, and those that support them at the centre of our service delivery.

Youturn Youth Support commenced providing services in 1989 to help youth homelessness in the Noosa Region.  While over the following 30 years our organization has grown, branching into other important community services and expanding our geographic reach, young people remain at the heart of everything that we do.

who we work with

Young people are at the heart of everything we do and our youth support services fall within three core focus areas which are child safety, homelessness and mental health.

Our Youth Support 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.

“We believe that being part of a community network and solutions is the best way to service the young people and families we focus on. We are grateful for your trust in us and support that allow us to help people live better lives”

Most young people reach out to us in times of intense crisis or emotional distress, seeking our understanding and compassion. Our staff provide non-judgmental, individualised support to those in need, ensuring we are delivering on our Mission, Vision and values.
