Make a difference
yourtown team members take the time to listen, understand and encourage young people to find their place.
Our wide-ranging client services include counselling and mentoring, family refuges, parenting and family services, education and re-engagement programs, training and employment, work enterprises, Indigenous employment and wellbeing programs.
yourtown is committed to providing services that protect and keep children, young people and adults at risk free from harm.
That requires all of us to share in the responsibility of promoting safeguarding through our actions and to empowering children and young people to have a voice.
As part of yourtown’s commitment to safeguarding, working with children checks are undertaken for all new employees and contractors before they commence working with us. If you are considering working with children and young people and you do not already have a working with children check, we would encourage you to explore (and apply for) the working with children check relevant to the state you reside in.
