Gold Coast Youth Service

Young People Support



      The ABS Census 2011 data estimates that 19,585 persons were homeless in Queensland
      • A significant proportion of those are young people (predominantly women)
      • 27% are children under 18 years
      • Research shows that those who first experience homelessness at a young age are more likely to experience persistent homelessness in adulthood. (Homelessness Australia "Homelessness and Young People")

      What do we do?

      • We house young people and provide them with support until they get back on the feet
      • We educate young people including Independent Living Skills
      • We assist young people with housing, legal matters, health issues, information regarding various services in their community, advocacy and referral as well as long-term case management
      • Our Chill Out Zone operates in Surfers Paradise every weekend to help prevent adverse effects of public intoxication by providing first aid and practical assistance

      What can you do?

      • By making a cash donation you can help us to attain our vision "A Gold Coast City where young people are hopeful about their future valued and supported to realize their full potential"
      • Ensure that all young people have access to basic human rights such as food and affordable, safe and secure housing, transport, employment education and training opportunities and adequate health services
      • Your generosity will help us provide young people with the support they require to end the cycle of poverty and homelessness and create a better future for all Australians.
      Give today to ensure that all young people have a bright and rewarding future!
