AYCAFE and AYC HELPING FAMILIES SURVIVE COVID-19

$

For 33 years Auburn Youth Centre (AYC) has been providing support to disadvantaged youth of Western Sydney and their families.  In 2021, through major parts of the pandemic  AYC supported  overe 1100 young people aged 12 -24 and their families.  Over 55% of young people supported were born overseas, coming from 55 different countries. 

The pandemic has hit our commmunity hard. Our Cafe is  providing free grocery packs and essential household items. For those isolated or in isolation we are making deliveries. For families in absolute hardship we asist, as best we can with payment of bills, petrol and phone credit.

Pre COVID our area was one of the most disadvantaged being in the poorest 15% of areas for socio economic disadvantage in NSW, with some Suburbs being in the 4-7th percentile for disadvantage. COVID and the lockdown of Western Sdney has furthered this disadvantage into poverty and despair.  Youth disengagement was 46% higher than the average for Greater Sydney. 1 in 8 young people aged 15 - 24  neither working or undertaking education. This has grown draamatically.
