Youth Bail Services.
Youth Bail Services is a 24hr supervised bail program and accommodation option for young people on Supervised Bail who are unable to return home or need a safe place to stay and who do not have someone that can supervise their Court orders. HOPE’s Bail Services and Houses offer a culturally safe, friendly and homely environment to stay in. We work alongside our young persons in our care to create an individual program to meet each person’s unique needs. This may include skills such as anger management, self esteem, education and training, resume preparation and job hunting skills, cooking, cleaning, shopping and life skills, alcohol and drug education and reaching out to family. We can also help with Centrelink payments, ID, setting up bank accounts, getting to court appearances and accessing other support services.
Youth Transitional Accommodation Program (YTAP).
YTAP is a supported accommodation program for young people between the ages of 13 – 17 years that supports young people who are on Supervised Release Orders or other Community Based Orders by providing supported accommodation, life skills development and by helping young people in completing conditions on their orders. Accommodation is available for up to three months or to the age of 18 years. YTAP provides an educational day program when no other meaningful education or employment opportunities are available and can assist with finding longer term accommodation. Youth Justice is the only accepted referrer to this program.
