A World For, By And With Young People

To do this we are asking individuals who work with young people to fill out our survey.


Recognise, celebrate, promote and reward outstanding practice in working with young people in the ACT and surrounding area.

Connecting Young People to Services in the ACT

CNCT is a directory of services for 12-25 year olds in the ACT
S&CY and Ruby’s would provide an integrated service that covers both the outreach and residential needs of children and young people at risk of homelessness. These services prevent youth homelessness and all the risks associated with youth homelessness.

A coalition of over 20 service delivery, human rights, legal and representative organisations in the ACT have welcomed the community consultation undertaken by the ACT Government as a step towards fulfilling their commitment to Raise the Age.

Evaluation of the Safe & Connected Youth pilot, funded by the ACT Government, shows a decreased risk of homelessness whilst increasing employment, education and mental health outcomes for young people engaged in the program.
