Safe and ConnectedOur team supports young people aged 12-25 to connect to opportunities, community and support.
Please text 0467 791 653 9am-5pm weekdays to get in touch with us.
We want you to be connected to your community, know about opportunities in your area and have independent people to go to when you need someone to talk to. We also understand that this past year or so has been difficult for many people, so we’re here to support you to feel safe and connected.
We can come to you, you can come to us or we can meet you somewhere in the middle.
There are several ways you can get in contact with our team. We’re located at 210 Timor Street at the Brophy Community & Youth Complex so you can walk in and ask for the Safe & Connected Team. Or if you’d prefer, we’re also available to call or text on 0467 791 653 or you can email us on SafeConnected@brophy.org.au
We’re in the office from 9am-5pm Monday-Friday and we will get back to you as soon as we can!
If you are experiencing an emergency please call Triple Zero – 000 or Lifeline – 13 11 14
Safe and Connected in a nutshell
The first step to connecting
Texting us is the quickest way to get in touch. We can respond 9am-5pm weekdays. You don’t need to know what you need to talk about, we are a safe place to start and are here to work out what is happening and how we can support you.
We come to you
You might need someone to come to you, and that is what we are here for. We can also meet you somewhere in public where you feel comfortable. If you don’t know where to start we can catch up for a chat and work things out from there.
Every person’s situation is different, your circumstances are unique and we understand some things work for you and not for others, so this is all about you and working out what you need.
We are free
Our service is free. There is so much support and so many opportunities we can link you with and we are only a text, email or call away from catching up.
Please note: We are not a crisis service. If you are experiencing an emergency please call Triple Zero – 000 or Lifeline – 13 11 14
