OUTDOOR EXPLORE

Outdoor Explore is a therapeutic, adventure-based program in which young people learn & develop skills involving team work and resilience using guided outdoor challenging experiences in a bush setting.

YOUTH CENTRES

Youth Centres are safe spaces for young people to connect with peers and youth workers, have fun, talk about issues and develop social skills. Our Youth Centres run in Katoomba and Springwood.

INDIVIDUAL SUPPORT

Our experienced staff provide direct support to young people between the ages of 12-24 including emergency practical assistance, ongoing case management, counselling, court support and advocacy.

WHAT WE DO MAKES A DIFFERENCE

“Difficult circumstances and relationship breakdown can temporarily impair the success of a young person. On the other hand providing support, consistency and empowerment can transform a young life and their community.”

Youth Centres

Youth centres provide a safe and friendly place for young people to socialize, hang-out and access good information & support.

Individual & Family Work

Our experienced staff help clients with tough or complex problems to understand and access a range of care and support options.

Bush Adventure Therapy

Our evidence based programs focus on the development of social and interpersonal communication skills for young people.

Counselling

Counselling is a process where the counsellor and the young person or family develop better outcomes for everyone involved.

Groups & Programs

Our personal development programs are targeted interventions that address a range of social and emotional issues.

Information & Referral

As part of the Linker Network we work to ensure that all people in our community are supported to get the right help at the right time.
