Youth Solutions is a youth drug and alcohol prevention and health promotion charity working with young people 12 – 25 years of age and the broader community.

Youth Solutions works across the Macarthur and Wingecarribee regions of NSW, delivering health education programs, campaigns and activities aimed at reducing and preventing our community’s young people from experiencing the harms of drugs and alcohol.

We work to educate and empower young people, to inch closer to our vision of a community of healthy, safe and connected young people. Our drug, alcohol and wellbeing strategies focus on learning, participation and support.

Why we need your help

The Macarthur and Wingecarribee regions of NSW are growing populations, with a significant proportion of young people. Accordingly, there is growing demand for Youth Solutions programs and services within these growing communities and beyond.

At the same time, research shows that alcohol and drug use remain the leading cause of death and disease for young people.

It truly takes a community to keep our young people healthy, safe and connected and your support is the key.

We believe educating and supporting our young people is the key to preventing and reducing the harms our young people are facing because of drugs and alcohol.

Your tax deductible donation will help us to provide the programs, campaigns and services needed to support our young people.

Your donation will have a great impact on the work Youth Solutions does.
