Beyond Youth Justice Services (Beyond YJS)

This service provides young people – who are engaged with youth justice services – support and assistance in the areas of rehabilitation and emotional wellbeing.

Beyond YJS is a consortium led by Centrecare, in partnership with Wungening and UnitingCare West. As well as community based individual support, each partner agency delivers workshops (such as psycho-social skills development) at Banksia Hill.

In addition, Wungening delivers a suite of successful programs – called UTurn, Who’s Ya Mob, and 180 Degrees – in a culturally appropriate and responsive manner.

Beyond YJS provides support to nearly 1,500 people a year with nearly two thirds identifying as Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islanders.

Beyond YJS operates in the Central Metropolitan, North Metropolitan, South East Metropolitan and South West Metropolitan catchments, inclusive of Banksia Hill Detention Centre.


Stronger Together - Intensive Family Support Services (IFSS)

This service provides intensive, in-home support to families who are most at risk of child protection intervention. Or, it’s for families who require support to reunify children back to their care. A consortium led by Centrecare, in partnership with Wungening and Lamp (South West).

We work holistically with families and the Department of Communities – Child Protection and Family Support, to reduce child protection concerns in the family home utilising a culturally appropriate, strength-based approach.

A key aim is for children to be living in safe, stable and nurturing environments. Working alongside the Department of Communities, we help families identify safety goals and provide holistic management of complex issues including drug and alcohol abuse, family and domestic violence, child safety concerns and mental health issues. We can also assist with future planning and goal setting.
