Service Partnerships

It takes a whole community to effect positive change in the lives of young people.

Our vision is for a community of young people with the capacity to live healthy, safe and well-connected lives. At Youth Solutions, we work to prevent and reduce drug and alcohol harm and increase healthy behaviours and connection to support. And we cannot do it alone.

Here at Youth Solutions, we appreciate the importance of collaborating with others and greatly value the partnerships we hold with other organisations, sectors, services, charities, businesses, community and cultural leaders. These relationships are key to improving the health and social outcomes for young people in our community.

As part of our commitment to a whole of community approach, the Youth Solutions’ AOD Link program aims to provide training and education to other community sector workers, parents and carers with the aim of upskilling them to enhance their ability to support their young people and/or clients. Find more information on AOD Link here.

In the course of its work, Youth Solutions also regularly engages and collaborates with:

Parents/carers and families

Teachers, educators, schools and other education institutions

First Nations Elders, Leaders, creatives and organisations

Local government and elected representatives

Other youth and health services and networks

Other charities, service clubs and non-government organisations

Juvenile justice


Local Chambers of Commerce


Youth Solutions is privileged to work on Dharawal and Gundungurra lands, paying our respects to the Traditional Custodians of the land and Elders past and present.
