What is the young people hub?
When there are many government services it can be hard to find the right one for you. You can use this Young People hub to quickly and easily find what you need and connect to NSW government support services. There are a wide range of resources to support you in becoming an adult, navigating social problems and challenges you might face in day-to-day life.
If you have a question or would like to speak to someone, contact the Youth Team at the Department of Communities and Justice.
Leaving out-of-home care is a significant life stage so it's important you feel supported and prepared. Find out what goes into your leaving care plan and what support is available to help you transition smoothly.
