Young people experiencing homelessness who are engaged with Frontyard can have a shower, wash clothes, or grab some toiletries, underwear, or socks and charge your mobile. While accommodation may bring comfort to young people left without a home, it’s not enough to stop the cycle of homelessness in the community.
We support an integrated approach, which provides young people with holistic, trauma-informed and healing orientated support. Our services seek to understand the deeper issues that put young people at risk of homelessness to begin with. Through this integrated support we aim to prevent people becoming entrenched the homeless service system.
Centrelink provides drop in, face to face, onsite support 1:30pm-3:30pm Wednesdays.
Frontyard provides a mixture of on-site crisis accommodation, and up to six months longer term stays. The accommodation is purpose-built, and rooms include ensuites as well as shared common spaces and facilities for young people to access. During their stay, young people will receive assistance with finding longer-term housing solutions and outcomes.
The innovative model provides staffed 24-hour care, access to co-located and integrated services, and aims to disrupt a young person’s experience of homelessness.
Referrals to the Circuit Breaker accommodation program must come through homelessness access points, including the Frontyard (FYS) Access Point located at Frontyard.
