headspace Ballarat Launch a One Stop Youth Services Directory in Ballarat
A one-stop directory for Ballarat’s youth services will be launched on Friday 3rd November. Youth Direct, a mobile-friendly website, is a collaboration between headspace Ballarat and Federation University.
headspace paid intern Peir Allen has compiled an updated directory of services, programs and events supporting Ballarat’s young people.
“There’s nothing like it I feel, and it’s just really needed,” Ms Allen said.
“For a young person who might be in crisis, I think that this is going to be the tool that they use to find what they need and right away.
“Not only for them but for parents and schools as well, and for other organisations to know what else is available in Ballarat.”
Ms Allen is a second year Social Services diploma student. The website will be designed by Federation University fourth year tech students for their final year project. The project has meant Ms Allen can help others as she learns.
“For me personally it’s opened my eyes up to how much there is available in Ballarat,” she said.
