Youth support program
Transitional housing is a form of social housing delivered by Queensland Youth and Families Support Servicess (QYFSS). Transitional housing is not long term housing but aims to provide support to eligible young people aged 16 -25 years with life skills and case management for up to 12 months, then support to transition into independent living through:
- Shared accommodation
- Youth worker support
- Support and referral to other services
- Life skills
- Employment Assistance
Our youth workers aim to support young people that is client focused and client centred where young people actively participate in identifying their support needs including individual support, tailored activities, lifestyle education, community participation and advocacy.
The young person can contact Queensland Youth and Families Support Services themselves, or be referred by service providers, family members, schools, friends, police or government agencies by phoning (07) 3818 1050 or completing a Queensland Homelessness Information Platform (QHIP) assessment.
The transitional housing program is funded through the Department of housing and public works.
