About Reconnect

Our Reconnect Program is a community based early intervention service for young people aged between 12 to 18 years who are homeless or at risk of being homeless, to help them stay connected to family, community, culture, education, employment and training.

Our Reconnect case workers support young people to secure safe and appropriate accommodation and provides assistance in case management, family reconciliation and mediation, enrolment in school, employment and training, income support, recreational and cultural activities, advocacy, referrals to other services and agencies and the use of emergency relief monies and transport. An  important focus is on helping young people to make positive life  choices and strengthen their connection to family and culture. Our  Reconnect program is designed and delivered by local Aboriginal people,  we link to many other services and organisations to enable specific and  targeted support to young people and their families.

Funded by the Australian Government Department of Social Services.
