Youth programs

Keny Moort – One Family

Keny Moort (Noongar for One Family) targets vulnerable young people who are at high risk of becoming entrenched in the criminal justice system. The program aims to promote inclusion and build resilience by providing intensive case management and drop-in support services with extended supports to families. A calendar of activities, developed by young people themselves, provides opportunities to have fun and learn together while building positive connections within community.

LIFT

The LIFT Program responds to young people with complex needs who are exiting the care system and are at risk of homelessness. Often, these young people have experiences of trauma throughout their childhood. The LIFT program aims to support these care leavers by providing a safe, affordable place to belong, where they can be supported to develop independent living skills and take time to heal and connect with community supports.

Transitional High Needs (THN) Program

A young person may require a high needs placement as a consequence of leaving secure care or detention, a placement breakdown, or because they are unable to remain in residential care. These young people receive safe and secure accommodation and intensive, individualised support to live independently.

Drug Education Program

The Drug Education Program provides targeted, evidence-based Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) responses with a focus on harm reduction through support and education. The aim is to promote safer behaviours and reduce preventable AOD risk factors. Young people receive one-on-one wellbeing assessment and are encouraged and supported to access group education sessions and informal counselling.
