Youth at risk of homelessness

Reconnect is a youth service that uses the Hub as a safe space to meet with young people and families.

Reconnect helps young people between the ages of 12 and 18 years who are homeless or at the risk of homelessness, along with their families.

How Reconnect can help

Reconnect works with young people who are homeless and those at risk of homelessness to become more involved with their family, work, education, training and the community through mediation, counselling and practical support for the whole family. It also provides confidential support to families to try to help young people to stay at home until they have the necessary skills to become independent.

Reconnect workers are able to meet with young people and their families at the Hub at a time that suits them.
