In May 2013 two long standing not-for-profit Organisations, Youth and Family Focus Inc. and Community Connections Inc., merged to become Youth, Family and Community Connections Inc.
The merger was a direct response to the need to ensure long-term and sustainable service delivery. The depth of talent and range of skills and knowledge within both organisations being complementary, it was recognised that by pooling resources more effective outcomes could be achieved with reduced chances of service duplication.
The Organisation continues to provide a range of services to young people, families and individuals in communities across the North West Coast and West Coast of Tasmania, with the aim that they are able to access to the support, encouragement and resources they need.
Our treatments are client centred, solution focussed, holistic (we look at all the social determinants of health), and focussed on improving health and social outcomes within a harm minimisation framework. Our understanding of complex needs demonstrates a unique service delivery that values integrity, diversity, initiative and collaboration. The range of models that we work from underpins these values because we are passionate about supporting youth and families & communities toward a better future.
We offer a diverse range of flexible and accessible programs that promote the wellbeing and safety of children, young people and families.
