Support Services for Young People

Youth Lifestyle Options Pty Ltd is a private company that currently operates within South East Queensland providing accommodation and support services to children and young people.

We provide residential and support services for complex and at-risk youth, with a therapeutic and programmatic response to stabilisation and transition from care needs.

These include support and intervention to foster care placements that are considered under stress, placement options with a therapeutic approach, counselling, early intervention programs and youth group services.

Our service provision ensures that an appropriate level of support is provided to young people in a way that is consistent with their needs and support individual growth in a way that is cost-effective and not wasteful or revenue-driven.
