Youth Support Service
The Charleville Youth Support Service is focused on providing support services to vulnerable young people and strengthening their relationships with their families and support networks. The Youth Support Service is targeted specifically at young people aged 8 to 21 years of age who are at risk of:
Disconnecting from their family/community or support networks
Disengaging from school, training and/or employment
Harm, including self-harm
Homelessness, or at risk of homelessness
The Youth Support Service provides an essential early intervention response to young people who present with risk factors that may impact their well-being and result in harm, homelessness, and/or negative health outcomes.
Bonnie Smith is the Youth Support Worker and she is well-connected to a wide range of services in our community. Bonnie aims to ensure that young people are referred to the most appropriate service/s for their identified needs, taking into account their individual circumstances and the service resources available.
Bonnie assists young people with acquiring the skills and resources to encourage the above, including the provision of general information, advice and referral; coordination and network development; and community, social and personal development and support.
