About the Event

Street Connect is a program that aims to make connections   with marginalised young people between the age of 15-25 years old who gather   regularly in public places and engage them in positive life changes. The   service is provided by a team of Youth Workers who provide daily outreach via   the Mobile Youth Resource Centre (the Street Connect Outreach Bus).

Our Youth Workers meet with young people on the streets,   forming positive working relationships and providing informal counselling,   referral to other helpful services, advocacy, crisis intervention and   follow-up support. They also assist young people to understand their legal   rights and responsibilities in relation to their use of public space. The   outreach bus is stocked with information on services and referral resources,   and also provides food and useful items including:

• freshly   made sandwiches

• water

• pregnancy   tests

• condoms

• first   aid kits

• hygiene   packs

• sleeping   bags

• access   to mobile phones/IT

Our guest speaker will be Kate Agnew the Street Connect Coordinator. 

We are delighted to support Street Connect in February. Your food is included in this price and 50% of the ticket proceeds after costs to the beneficiary for the month. 

 Come to listen, learn and be inspired. As professional we could all learn and help more.
