Reconnect

Reconnect is an Early Intervention and Prevention Program aimed at supporting young people aged 12 to 18 years to develop skills to resolve conflict’s either at school, home or with peers.

We aim to reduce the risk of things getting out of control – low school attendance, fighting with mum, dad or siblings or things in life just not going well. During the young person’s engagement with Reconnect we aim to build a young person’s skills for life.

Reconnect services provide counselling, group work, mediation and practical support to the whole family, to help prevent relationships from breakdown. Reconnect service providers also purchase other services to meet the individual needs of clients, such as specialised mental health services.
