Service Description

The Youth Health Team is a FREE and confidential health service that works with young people who are 12-18 years, with a particular focus on young people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. To be eligible the young person must frequent, live in, work in or study in the regions of Newcastle, Lake Macquarie or Port Stephens.
