Get supported for free!

We are funded to work with our clients for a period of 3-6 months. This means that our service is FREE of charge and you can refer yourself or someone else by contacting one of our youth workers. We work Monday to Friday 9:30am to 5:30pm. Our office is located in the Youth Hub in Bellingen. However, the service covers the whole Shire and the Youth Caseworkers can arrange to meet you in Urunga, Dorrigo and other surrounds. Give us a call for more information.

The FREE Youth Clinic at the Youth Hub is available Thursdays 2-5pm, with access to a doctor or a psychologist. This service is absolutely confidential. BSYS can assist you with appointments and support you during the sessions.
