Melbourne Gateway Reconnect is a statewide early intervention program that aims to prevent youth homelessness. We aim to improve the level of communication, engagement and connectedness of young people who are homeless or at risk of leaving home with family, education/training, work or the broader community. We particularly assist young people to connect back to their communities. We are based at Frontyard Youth Services.
We can support those:
- Aged between 12 to 18 years of age (or up to 21 years if from a CALD background and arrived in Australia in the last 5 years);
- Housing situation: Homeless or at risk of homelessness;
- Who are connected to the CBD of Melbourne in some form (family, school, training etc).
