For Families

Information, Support & Referral

Maroondah Youth Services can provide information, support and assistance with referrals to local young people and their families, between the ages of 12 - 25 years, who live, work or study within Maroondah. 

We can help young people and parents to find assistance or support on almost any issue for a young person, including school, finding a job, family issues, getting involved in the community, or if a young person is just having a hard time.

If we can't help directly, we can assist parents and carers to identify what other services might suit their young person, and support them to access these services. 

We are happy to speak directly with parents and carers, or arrange for one of our friendly and qualified Youth Workers to meet or talk with a young person to discuss their options.

For assistance, contact us to have a chat or make an appointment for a young person.  Young people can also drop in at EV's Youth Centre during opening hours - click here for EV's opening hours
