Network Coordination Services
Through the ACT Child, Youth and Family Support Program (CYFSP), Anglicare is part of Network Coordination Services, which builds collaborative partnerships between Territory funded and Australian Government funded services to promote effective communication and service provision to vulnerable children and young people in Woden, Weston Creek and South Canberra.
In addition to the above, the Network also works together to evaluate youth services and strategically develop plans to cater for growing areas of need.

Youth at Risk Support Program
The ‘Youth at Risk’ Support Program is a targeted service, working with Indigenous Young People in Wagga Wagga. Our aim is to intervene and offer strategies for young people to reduce offending behaviours. Culturally appropriate support is tailored specifically for each young person and their situation.
Case Managers work with the young person, their community and wider networks to build resilience, promote strong relationships and encourage engagement in positive community activities. On an individual basis, the service will re-engage and support access to school or alternative education pathways.
For every young person, we want to promote cultural identity and engagement, independence and self-worth. Our team believe that young people are not defined by their offending behaviour and set out to inspire this attitude in the clients as well.

Joint Support Program (JSP) Casework Support Service
The JSP Casework Support Service is funded by the Department of Justice and provides a broad range of supports that assist a young person, under the supervision of Juvenile Justice, to establish positive relationships and interactions within the community. The Casework Support Service compliments Juvenile Justice case management for young people, that is centred on the delivery of offender-focused programs and interventions.
The caseworker supports the young person and their families to transition away from lifestyles that bring them into conflict with the justice system. They assist in meeting agreed target outcomes that support clients to achieve their transition goals as well as liaise and advocate with other community service representatives on behalf of the young person.
