Youth Partnerships

Access and Service Coordination Project

The aim of the Access and Service Coordination Project which developed this website (2012-2014) was to demonstrate how schools and youth and community services can work more effectively together to improve the identification, assessment and service provision for young people at risk of disengaging, or who have already disengaged, from education, family and/or the community. The target group for this project was secondary school-aged young people.

The project worked alongside schools and community services to develop an Initial Needs Identification (INI) tool and referral protocols based on the PCP Service Coordination Framework and associated Service Coordination Tool Templates (SCTT). Consultation with key stakeholders, including young people, was essential element of the development process.

In addition, the development of this interactive online service directory identifying youth services in both areas for use by young people, parents and carers, schools, and community services in the local area was key outcome of the project

This project was a partnership between Wyndham City, Hobsons Bay City Council and HealthWest Primary Care Partnership (PCP) funded by the Youth Partnerships Initiative through the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (DEECD).
