Young people can face many issues which may lead to them becoming disengaged from education, employment, family and community.
Our youth programs offer individual support, counselling, education and practical assistance to help young people re-establish relationships and break out of destructive cycles of living.
Reconnect is a free program offering ongoing support to young people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, working with them and their families to resolve conflict and restore relationships.
Reconnect services are available to young people aged 12 to 18 years (or 12 to 21 years for those recently arrived in Australia) who are experiencing difficulties within their family, peer group or school relationships and are considering leaving home or have recently left home.
We work with each person according to their individual situation and offer a range of support, including counselling and mediation and assistance with issues such as family reconciliation, education, employment, accommodation, legal problems, health and dealing with Centrelink.
Anglicare Reconnect services are available in the following local government areas:
The service is also available in some parts of the Cumberland local government area. For referrals or enquiries please call 9835 8040 or email [email protected]
