North Yarra Community Health first opened Youth Space on the Collingwood housing estate in May 2003. This drop-in facility for young people aged 11 – 18 years, living in Collingwood public housing, has gone from strength to strength with increased numbers of young people attending and participating in activities, and, since 2005, an additional half-time youth worker provided by the City of Yarra Youth Services.
This Survey was made possible through a City of Yarra Community Grant to North Yarra Community Health and is based on similar surveys used in other Neighbourhood Renewal areas.
Youth Space is a very successful local youth program. It is a focal gathering point for young people living in and around the Collingwood housing estate. Young people of diverse cultural backgrounds have access to activities and enjoy one another’s company. Youth Space provides a bridge for many young people to link with other key services and supports such as schools, sporting activities, local amenities, Centrelink, family support and more.
Youth Space is a wonderful working example of genuine ‘partnership in action’ between North Yarra Community Health and City of Yarra.
