The Youth Hub is more than linking young people and their family/carers and friends to professional service support. It assists in building a community and support network within the Pittwater area for our young people.
What We Aim to Do
Youth Hub aims to be a safe space for young people, their families and support persons. A go-to for help with a range of concerns in respect to a young person, not just in times of crises.
This could involve general feelings of confusion or concern to matters relating to family conflict, homelessness (couch surfing), Drug and Alcohol, school issues, police matters, mental health or simply coming in to ask for advice.
Who We Are
The Youth Hub comprises of existing youth agencies coming together to provide a service within the Pittwater Community. The Youth Hub is led by The Burdekin Association with support from a range of Youth Services including: CCNB (Seasons program), Catholic Care, Mission Australia, The Burdekin Association, Taldumande, Child Youth Mental Health Service (CYMHS), Northern Beaches Community College, Streetwork, Youth Reach, Sydney Drug and Education and Counselling Centre (SDECC) , Odyssey House and the Primary Health Network.
We Are Funded By
