Youth Support

8 – 21 YEARS

The Youth Support program is based in Toowoomba, and helps young people aged 8 – 21 years in a holistic case-managed framework, working closely with other agencies to deliver innovative and effective services to at-risk and disadvantaged young people.

Referrals to the program include young people who are:

At risk of disconnection from family/community or support networks
At risk of disengagement from school, training and/or employment
At risk of harm, including self-harm
Homeless or at risk of homelessness

Youth Support can also be a one off for young people seeking advice, onward referral and support through a crisis involving the above criteria. This is our “access” side of the program which also includes Court Support.

Court Support: The Youth Support worker is the first point of contact for young people and families at the Toowoomba Children’s Court and is aimed at creating an atmosphere of respect and understanding among young people and their families about court processes. The Youth Support worker explains their function at court, provides advice and information about programs, referral to other agencies or support in the courtroom. The Youth Support worker will also provide practical information such as the courthouse facilities, locations of the courtrooms and waiting times. The Youth Support worker will direct young people to speak with a solicitor and the Youth Justice Toowoomba Court Coordinator, as well as when it is their time to appear in court.
