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.

Network Coordination

The role of Network Coordination for the Tuggeranong Region exists to develop and promote active relationships across and between the Child, Youth and Family Services Program, all tiers of government and the broader service system including non-government community service organisations and the for-profit sector.

The aim of the Tuggeranong Network Coordination is to aid in the delivery of better outcomes for children, young people and their families through the identification of any unmet need and gaps in service delivery, to promote proactive responses to emerging need and build sustainable collaborative relationships between organisations.

The Network Coordinator for Tuggeranong Region can be contacted Monday to Friday.
