Funding & Partnerships

Funding

YAC is mainly funded through government grants but seeks funding from a range of philanthropic and other sources. In today’s tight and competitive fiscal climate we are always looking to identify opportunities for potential partnerships, including with the corporate sector, to support service to young people in need.

We see great potential in partnering which enables those who are interested in assisting young people, but who are not sure how to best target their resources, with a focus for that support.

If you, your business or employer would be interested in partnering or supporting YAC in some way – please contact our CEO on 3356 1002 or admin@yac.net.au

YAC thanks all its funding bodies and partners for their ongoing support in the delivery of services for the young people we work with.

Government funding

As a community legal centre, YAC’s legal services are funded through the National Partnership on Legal Assistance Services, whereby the Commonwealth Government and State/Territory governments jointly fund legal services.

We also receive government funding for our Youth Support and Family Support services.

Other grants

YAC would like to acknowledge the support of the Lady Bowen Trust in funding our youth support services, particularly our accommodation support. You can read more about the Lady Bowen Trust here.

The grants applied for and received during financial years is reported in our annual reports. We thank those awarding the grants for valuing the work which YAC does by providing these additional monies for particular projects or resources.

Commercial partnerships

We welcome partnerships with commercial organisations who are interested in assisting young people.
