YFS understands it is hard to ring without knowing exactly what to ask for, that’s why we have one central door for all new people, called YFS Connect.
How we can help
YFS services are free, so when you ring or visit you’ll speak with YFS Connect, who will help you find a service that best meets what you’re looking for.
This could be a YFS service, or another service in the community. YFS Connect have up to date knowledge of YFS program vacancies, and work to avoid people being caught in the frustrating referral roundabout.
YFS Connect exists primarily to help people who are homeless, or at risk of homelessness, and not already linked with services.
Other services are welcome to contact, however calls to people experiencing homelessness are prioritised over agency calls for resources and information.
