Our Place is a centre that primarily provides education and accommodation to help young people who are at risk of homelessness. The service is tailored to encourage individuals (between 16 and 21 years old) realise their aspirations and help them fulfil their potential. Our Place provides a safe and affordable home; living skills; wellbeing and health care; education and training; as well as guidance and employment pathway advice from our experienced staff. Residents of Our Place are required to be engaged in education or employment for a minimum of 25 hours per week.
Our Place is operated by Anglicare in partnership with Barnardos and the Rotary Club of Canberra. Funding is provided by ACT Government Community Services and through the generous donations of the Canberra community.
