The Street-Smart Project aims to support young people aged 10 – 24 years old who are involved or ‘at risk’ of involvement with the criminal justice system and who are not accessing mainstream youth-related services. The project also supports young people who have or at risk of developing drug and alcohol issues.
The project adopts a form of outreach and street-based youth work that operates without the use of a centre and occurs where young people “are at” both geographically and developmentally. This project operates in evenings at times of high risk, responsive to areas of youth-related activity including anti-social behaviour & substance misuse and abuse.
The Street Smart Project is running in the following areas
- Canterbury Bankstown Local Government Area (LGA)
- City of Sydney LGA
- Georges River LGA
- Cumberland LGA
