At West Coast Youth services we aim to provide at risk youth with the opportunity and support to grow, change and achieve their short term and long term life goals.
We offer youth work, mentoring, transport, court support, sibling contact supervision.
We are flexible with times and understand that young peoples needs do not just fall between 9-5 and Monday to Friday; we provide after hours crisis support to young people and negotiate individual needs for after hours activities.
We believe in a team approach and it takes a village to raise a young person.
We do not have a one size fits all approach and pride our selves on getting to know the individual, their needs and providing customised support in conjunction with other stake holders
We are able to connect the young people to other services which can include housing, counselling, centerlink, job agencies as required.
We offer high interest activities at the end of every term.
We believe in the 3 Fs FIRM,FAIR and FUN
