Western Reconnect

  1. About This Service

    Western Reconnect is an early intervention service that aims to help young people who are homeless or at risk of leaving home. We are based in Braybrook and serve the local government areas of Maribyrnong, Brimbank and Moonee Valley. The aim of the service is to strengthen relationships between the young person and their family and to reconnect them with their community.

    We can:

    • provide support for young people to remain connected to family, school, training and their community
    • provide assistance and advocacy support, which may include issues arising from family conflict, family mediation, education, income support, accommodation, employment and conflict resolution
    • help the young person to develop a realistic understanding of the issues they may face if they leave home
    • help with referrals for young people to other services such as health care providers, Department of Human Services Centrelink, legal and other community-based services within their local communities and alternative options / services for young people within their local communities.
