Hope Street have zero tolerance of child abuse, neglect and harm.

Hope Street has been declared a participating institution under 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.

Hope Street has zero tolerance of child abuse, neglect and harm, all aspects of online safety risks including grooming. With all allegations and safety concerns taken very seriously, investigated robustly, consistent with policies and procedures the safety of children and young people are always paramount.

Hope to Home in Whittlesea

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.
