Individual Support

We empower young people and their families to reach goals and build resilience

Bellingen Shire Youth Service is the only locally based youth and family service that services Bellingen Shire.  Whilst we are a program of the Neighbourhood Centre, our office is strategically based within the Bellingen Youth Hub so that young people can easily access our Youth Caseworkers.  BSYS is non-threatening, trauma-informed “youth friendly” service that is focused on improving the lives of our local young people.

BSYS has been in this area for over twenty years, and works closely with a range of community stakeholders to find best outcomes for youth.  Our programs and individual support work is driven by experienced workers with a focus on balancing evidence informed practice and capacity to respond to local need.  We work across the entire shire, including Dorrigo, the seaboard and surrounding areas.

The service works collaboratively with young people and their families, high schools, other organisations and individuals.  We support young people aged 12-18 and their families who may be at risk or would benefit from extra support.

Outreach Services

Bellingen Shire Youth Caseworkers provide individual support to young people who live, work or study in Bellingen Shire.  Although our office is based at Bellingen Youth Hub, we provide an outreach service across the entire Shire including Dorrigo, Urunga, and the Seaboard.  We have visitied Dundurrabin Primary school and maintain a regular presence at Dorrigo High School and Dorrigo Youth Centre.   BSYS works collaboratively with other services and our local community to provide a service that is responsive, flexible and inclusive.
