Community Services

We deliver important programs and services in housing, social inclusion and youth services.

Our community services team operates within a strengths-based community development framework. We focus on building skills and providing important resources to individuals and families, to empower vulnerable communities in Canberra.

Housing Support

Our Housing Support Unit provides support to women and their families who are experiencing or are at risk of experiencing homelessness. We currently provide supported accommodation services on behalf of the ACT Government, and are a registered community housing provider.

We also assist clients with affordable and transitional housing and through our Supportive Tenancy Service.

Child, youth and community services

We work with young people and their families in Canberra through a range of important programs.

Our Mura Lanyon Youth and Community Centre houses the Lanyon Food Hub, drop-in sessions in the afternoons, and is a vibrant hub for community groups and organisations to utilise.

Our qualified Youth Engagement Team delivers a range of evidence-based programs, including the Tuggeranong Literacy Project, Every Girl, Respect, Communicate, Choose and Y-Aspire, as well as managing and coordinating the YWCA Canberra Clubhouse.

We also deliver Circles of Support, a counselling service for children and young people aged eight to 15 years and their families.
