Support

  • A range of supports are offered, including emotional and practical supports such as transport, and use of facilities.

Advocacy

  • Yarredi workers are familiar working within the systems that exist in our communities, and can assist with 'navigation' through these, and speak up for clients if their 'voices' are not being heard.

'Gateway' and Referral Service

  • Yarredi provides an entry point into a range of homelessness services.
  • Referrals to other appropriate or complementary services or agencies will be a supported and 'seamless' process.

Information

Framework

  • All workers operate within a client-centred case management framework, offering support to clients to set their own goals and make their own decisions.
