Who is this service for?
For young people who are disengaged, homeless or at risk of homelessness, and their families.
What is Reconnect?
This is a service that aims to reconnect young people (aged 12-18) with their families and the community, where there have been recent family difficulties, and to reduce homelessness risk.
We provide individual counselling, family meetings, practical assistance, telephone support, referral to other support services, help to make school easier, and other services as needed.
We provide group work to schools and education services to address early intervention and indicators of homelessness concerns and risk of young people leaving home early and unprepared; and to support young people to re-establish safe, stable and secure housing with family, extended family or support services where available.
This program is available in Launceston and the North-East.
How do I make an appointment?
You can self-refer by calling 1300 364 277.
Referrals can also be made through schools, Police, Family Services and Youth Services.
This is a free service, provided by the Australian Government, Department of Social Services.
