About the organisation

Organisation name : Latitude: Directions for Young People

Latitude has been operating within the Hobsons Bay and Moonee Valley Areas going back prior to the local council mergers of 1994-96. Whilst Latitude might have looked and named differently when under the guise of Baywest Youth Housing Group and Essendon Youth Accommodation Group, it still operated then under the same ethos as it does today.


Latitude is operated by a small professional team of outreach workers and a General Manager with 20+years’ experience in the community sector. The team’s focus is to end young people’s experience of homelessness and create a safe space where they belong.
