Everyone goes through tough times and sometimes young people and families might need a hand.
Reconnect services aim to provide a range of supports to young people aged between 12 and 18 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness, and who want some assistance with their family relationships. We assist with things like:
- Improving relationships
- Goal setting
- Connecting with education/work
A worker is linked to each young person to help in sorting things out with their family; connect them with training and employment services; help them to stay in school when it gets tough; provide income support and find somewhere safe to stay if necessary.
Samaritans Reconnect Services can be found at Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Cessnock, Maitland and Port Stephens.
