About Youth Advocacy Centre
YAC provides legal services, youth support and family support assistance and services to young people generally aged 10 to 18 years (inclusive) who live in or around the greater Brisbane region, particularly those who are involved in, or are at risk of involvement in, the youth justice and/or the child protection systems; and/or are homeless or at risk of homelessness (up to 25).
We provide more limited support to those under 10 and over 18 years of age; and to young people outside of Brisbane via telephone, website and publications.
YAC can help young people with things like:
- legal hassles – including being charged with breaking the law or child protection issues
- support while on bail
- problems at home or school
- family relationships
- lack of accommodation and/or income
- being the victim of a crime (including abuse)
- discrimination issues
If you aren’t sure if we can help with a problem – call us anyway! We can help link young people up with other services in the community to assist them if YAC can’t.
