We encourage you to demonstrate your support for our work by joining our family of Benefactors.

Our Benefactors play a leading role in maintaining and supporting our advocacy services, by helping deliver community legal education, family support services, and youth bail accommodation support services.

The Benefactor Program is our recognition program for our caring supporters who make a tax-deductible gift of over $100 per annum.

This level of contribution can have a direct impact on the outcomes YAC provides. Some examples of the ways our Benefactor contributions can be used are:

  • Legal Services:  giving legal advice to young people and their families, attendance at court, visitations in detention centres, and assistance in relation to suspension or expulsion from school;

  • Youth Support Services:  provision of information, advice, referral, support and advocacy to young people, particularly those at risk of homelessness or who have been victims of crime;

  • Family Support Services:  advocating on behalf of young people within their families, undertaking individual and family counselling, and working on family relationships and the young person’s issues within and external to their family;

  • Youth Bail Accommodation Support Services (YBASS):  assistance with complying with bail conditions, and accessing and maintaining safe accommodation for young people who are alleged to have committed an offence but who are homeless or have accommodation problems preventing them from being released on bail;

  • Legal Education Services:  providing information sessions, workshops, lectures and papers for schools, lawyers and social workers.

We would be delighted to have your support. Join our Benefactor family today and meet kind-hearted people, who like you, believe in the development of a social and legal system that is more responsive and appropriate to the needs of children and young people and which takes account of their developmental and situational issues as well as Australia’s international obligations.

At YAC we believe that young people in trouble with the law are not “bad kids”. We know that it is much more complex than that – from our own experience and from the wealth of research about young offenders. We know that young people entrenched in the criminal justice system often have significant social, welfare and relationship problems. And we believe that positive intervention while people are still young can help transform lives, for the good of the whole community.
