Our Mission / Objective

With a vision to provide ‘New Futures for Young People’, Brisbane Youth Service has been operating in Fortitude Valley since 1977. In that time we have helped tens of thousands of young people (aged 12-25 years) experiencing homelessness or at risk of becoming homeless, and their accompanying children.

Our Purpose:  To enable vulnerable young people and families to navigate life challenges and thrive in the community.

Our Commitment:  To promote a just society for young people.

Our Values:  Respect, Optimism, Accountability and Resilience.

Our Services

We assist vulnerable young people to find and maintain appropriate housing, address physical and mental health issues, and establish successful relationships and support networks. Services include a range of emergency and longer-term support programs such as:

  • Housing
  • Emergency relief
  • Support for young women and parents
  • Health services
  • Advocacy/support
