Hope Street has a zero tolerance to all forms of violence, including child abuse.

Hope Street is actively taking steps to become a participating institution in the National Redress Scheme.

The National Redress Scheme commenced on 1 July 2018 in response to recommendations by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse. The Scheme:

  • Acknowledges that many children were sexually abused in Australian institutions;
  • Holds institutions accountable for this abuse; and
  • Provides support to people who have experienced institutional child sexual abuse through access to counselling, a direct personal response from the institution (such as an apology), and/or a redress payment.

We are currently working with the Department of Social Services to fulfil the administrative processes to be declared as a participating institution.

Hope Street has a zero tolerance to all forms of violence, including child abuse, and is committed to creating safe communities which focus on the best interests of children and young people so they are able to thrive in their development and all they do. The organisation promotes the safety and empowerment of all children and young people acknowledging both their individual diversity and cultural heritage.

Please see our National Redress Scheme page for further information.

FEATURED PILOT PROGRAM: Hope to Home in Whittlesea

Many young people face obstacles when trying to secure stable accommodation due to no rental history, lack of affordable housing, and no employment to sustain rental leases.  The Hope to Home in Whittlesea pilot program will address these issues by:

  • Facilitating the transition of up to 30 young people (and their children) from the Hope Street in Whittlesea program or Whittlesea Housing into 1 and 2 bedroom units
  • Providing case management once they secure private rental of these units
  • Helping these young people maintain their tenancy, employment, education and training, and community connections
  • Engaging the support of community stakeholders including local businesses to address barriers contributing to youth homelessness

Please contact us if you would like to become a partner and support at risk young people and young families.
