Youth Action-Practical Resources

Youth Action is developing a number of practical resources to aid youth services in their work. We know that youth work can be complex, and that services face a variety of needs and questions. These resources are planned to equip service providers with the knowledge and tools they may need in some of the more difficult times. Follow the link to view resources.

Family Drug Support Online Service

Families of people using ice and other drugs are able to access support anytime of the day and night through a new Family Drug Support Online Service. The service includes evidence-based content relating to both early and advanced support for families at different stages of intervention.

The website was designed to expand the accessibility, scope and reach of Family Drug Services-particularly for people who aren’t able to attend its workshops. Follow the link for more information.

 

ACOSS Raise the Rate Campaign

Newstart and related payments including Youth Allowance, have not increased in real terms in 24 years.

They are now so low people cannot afford basic necessities like housing, meals, bills and transport, even if they get Rent Assistance. Follow the link to read more.

 

YMCA Youth Consultation Survey

The YMCA is currently working on a new youth mental wellbeing program specifically for young people. As part of this process, a survey has been created to hear the perspectives of young people.

The survey can be completed by any young person aged between 11-25 years and only takes a few minutes to complete. View survey

 

New FACS public website

The new FACS website has been designed to make it easier for you to find and understand information that helps you choose a service, make a decision or take an action. Follow the link to view the website.

Young People & Legal Consent

Youth Action is developing a number of practical resources to aid youth services in their work, to equip service providers with the knowledge and tools they may need in some of the more difficult areas. The fact sheet set “Young People and Legal Consent” include Background to Consent, Participation in Youth Services, Under-18s’ Participation in Research, and Photos and Videos.
