Child and Youth Services Directory
Written on the 17 April 2015
I attended the recent launch of the Child and Youth Services Directory by Commissioner for Children and Young People, Bernie Geary.
The Directory is a web based contact point that provides a list of services designed to help children and young people. It provides information, education and engagement opportunities designed to prevent a problem from happening and urgent help and intensive support for complex problems.
The Child and Youth Services Directory was developed in a three-way partnership with Family Life and the City of Stonnington - who are the auspicing agencies for School Focused Youth Services) and Bayside Medicare Local. All councils in the LGA's of Bayside, Kingston, Glen Eira, Port Phillip and Stonnington provided advice and recommendations for the development of the directory.
