Youth and Family Services

What are Youth and Family Services?

Our Youth and Family Services aim to strengthen relationships and community connection so young people and those who support them can better navigate adolescence and increase their wellbeing.

Who is it for?

Young people aged 12-17 years and/or their parent/carer who are residents of the Tweed, Byron and Ballina Shires. There is no cost for this service.

How do we support young people and their families?

Young people and families are supported either as a family unit or individually depending on what is most appropriate for the situation.

We assist to identify strengths and develop goals that indicate how they would like things to be. Once goals are identified we work together to create a support plan, outlining how we can assist them to achieve their goals.

The support plan is driven by the needs of the young person and their families and can include: counselling, relationships and parenting skill development, providing information about services and helping to access those services.

We also provide a range courses for young people in schools and the community and parenting programs for parents/carers in some locations.

When and Where

Youth and Family workers can meet with young people and families at our centres in Tweed Heads, Murwillumbah, Byron Bay, Ballina or in schools, homes and other agreed locations.

In school courses for young people are delivered in local primary and high schools. Other courses for young people and parenting courses are provided at various locations. See our course program here for details.
