About Indigenous Youth Service
After researching the existing services for Indigenous youth in the catchment to identify unmet needs, BHN developed and supported the creation of youth-specific services which address these needs.
Some of these services include:
- Identify existing and new participants in the community
- Support that is culturally safe and relevant
- Developing and strengthening networks with existing and potential partners, such as the Justice Department and the Department of Health and Human Services
- Plan and implement the priorities of the IAE
- Collaborations with other agencies
- Staff links within IAEP
- Caregiver support and links to Out of Home Care
- Strengthen identity through cultural programs
- Facilitate referrals by creating a central point of contact
- With a special focus on single-parent families, support families by supporting their children
