About Who we are Who we are Est. 1984 At Youth Projects, we are committed to breaking the cycle of disadvantage. We are an independent, registered charity which provides front line support to young people and individuals experiencing disadvantage, unemployment, homelessness, alcohol and other drug issues. We also help those looking to re-engage with learning and employment. We recognise the complex and varying needs of the people we work with and go above and beyond, 365 days a year, to provide pathways out of poverty. We are not only changing lives, but saving lives. Comprised of a highly skilled multi-disciplinary team, we have the ability to provide a complete wrap around, judgement free service with a strong focus on respect, client-centred care and harm prevention. The impact we seek enables each person to lead longer lives, have improved health, meaningful employment and a greater sense of belonging, safety and security through a holistic model of care. We work with people facing barriers to social and economic participation with a primary focus on young people and people experiencing homelessness to provide responsive and timely intervention to open up pathways out of poverty and homelessness - breaking the cycle of disadvantage. If you love the work we do, consider paying it forward and donate today. All contributions help us reach more young people, and change more lives. If you are wondering how you can use your skills and expertise to create social good then you may just be the next Change Maker or frontline warrior we are looking for.
