We have, youth workers, counsellors, drug and alcohol withdrawal workers, and a Centrelink worker who can answer questions you might have. We can also help your friends and other people who support you.

All our services are free and confidential – We will always put your safety first and won’t judge you.

In our drop in centre you’re welcome to use our computers or WiFi and make yourself a hot drink. When you feel comfortable, you can ask us about our services.

If you’re ready to speak to someone, we’ll make you an intake appointment. This is where we can decide – together – what you may need help with, and how we can help you.
