Calls to Brisbane Youth Service for support doubled during COVID-19 and continue to increase, with 80% of the enquiries relating to homelessness or housing needs. 

As demand for our services continues to grow, we need your help now more than ever.

You can support young people at risk of or experiencing homelessness this Christmas by donating to BYS through our Christmas Appeal (financial donations) or Christmas Hamper Drive (donation of a hamper that will be given to a young person or young family we support).   

For 43 years BYS has been working to create new futures for vulnerable and at-risk young people (and their children) aged 12-25 years, providing free, confidential services including:

  • crisis and transitional housing
  • medical clinic
  • mental health and drug and alcohol programs
  • specialist young women’s services
  • parenting and family assistance
  • emergency relief

Each year we are seeing more young people reaching out for support and in need of urgent assistance.

Donate today and your kind gift will provide vital services and assistance that help to empower young people as they work to get back on their feet, moving forward on their journey towards a better, brighter future. 

The pandemic has affected us all, but young people have been disproportionately impacted. Increased domestic and family violence, housing instability, drug and alcohol use, unemployment and social isolation have resulted in even more young people having no safe place to turn to.
