Projects

Yfoundations runs projects throughout the year to provide opportunities and support for young people, youth workers, and the sector to get involved and participate. Through workshops and trainings, Yfoundations is able to better engage with the community. Please find our current projects below:

Real Estate Training

Yfoundations, in conjunction with the Real Estate Institute of NSW (REINSW), designed the Real Estate Training Program to engage private real estate agents in the conversation of access and sustainable tenancies for vulnerable groups, specifically young people at-risk of homelessness.

The view is to provide a centralised strategy to implement this training and education as part of real estate agents ongoing accreditation.

For more information on the Real Estate Training Program please contact Lauren Brown02 8306 7906lauren@yfoundations.org.au

Juvenile Justice Project

Yfoundations has initiated an important piece of research, the scope of which is two-fold. Firstly, to better understand the practical difficulties of s 28 (the residential requirement) of the Bail Act and how we might best address those issues. Secondly, to establish what current housing pathways exist for young homeless people exiting detention and how they might be strengthened to more effectively meet the needs of those young people. Our shared goal is that no young person remain in detention simply because they are homeless.

As part of this we will consult with: Youth workers at specialist homelessness services across NSW; Solicitors working at Legal Aid and Aboriginal Legal Service across the state; The President of the Children’s Court and Specialist Children’s Magistrates; Staff working for JJ at detention centres and community offices; Young people currently on remand or in detention in NSW.
