|Brisbane Youth Service Inc||
This project supports young people who are experiencing homelessness with access to essential items to help them establish a new household as they transition into independent social and affordable housing.
Based on assessment by a qualified Youth Worker, support packs will include items such as fridges, washing machines, small appliances, and soft furnishings (e.g. linen/pillows), as well as cleaning packs.
