Fundraising

Youth Solutions continually strives to balance the demand placed on the Service with its current level of physical and financial resources.

By working together with businesses and the community, Youth Solutions can enhance its capacity as a means of improving the health, wellbeing and resilience of our young people and community.

Youth Solutions raises funds primarily through corporate partnerships and fundraising events. Youth Solutions also accepts donations (all donations over $2 are tax deductible) and can offer opportunities to businesses such as workplace giving or donation tins.

Community and business support helps Youth Solutions to promote the health of young people, empower them to make safer choices and prevent them from harm. It helps Youth Solutions to educate and support our young people, which is the key to ensuring a strong and resilient community now and in the future.
