Youthbeat is a Mission Australia safety and early intervention program supporting youth on the streets of the Perth CBD.
This comprehensive program provides mobile outreach to young people in the Northbridge and inner city areas, as well as counselling and goal setting. Youthbeat also runs a recreation program for young people on Thursday and Friday nights.
Youthbeat's brightly coloured vans are manned by professional youth workers who are trained to deal with alcohol and drug-fuelled incidents and support young people experiencing homelessness.
The service provides safety, information and guidance for young people at risk and connects them with local community services, family and peers.
A key feature of the model is follow-up support with young people and their families. Youthbeat helps young people to become strong, healthy adults who play active roles in their communities.
Our Youthbeat workers support young people to:
- Stay safe in public places
- Overcome drug and alcohol abuse
- Receive accommodation support
- Connect with their community
- Plan for the future
Youthbeat is funded by the Department of Health and Ageing, Department for Child Protection and Perth City Council. The program works in partnership with Nyoongar Patrol, City of Perth and the WA Police.
