Hope Street congratulates Odyssey House Victoria and all consortium members for being the successful provider of the new headspace facility in the City of Melton.

headspace is a specialist program providing early intervention mental and related physical health services to young people and young families. This is a significant win for young people and young families, as well as the community of Melton, as stated by NWMPHN CEO Adj/Associate Professor Christopher Carter:

"Melton has the highest rates of psychological distress of any local government area in Victoria, with 20.7% of people reporting high or very high psychological distress – nearly double the state average." -- New headspace service to boost youth mental health in Melton

Last Christmas, Woodgrove Shopping Centre partnered with City of Melton Youth Services in a charity gift wrapping service to support Hope Street's work with young people and young families.

From 18 December through to Christmas Eve outside Kmart at the Woodgrove Shopping Centre, gifts were being beautifully wrapped by the Youth Services team, who offer a huge range of programs and events for young people between the ages of 12-25 in the City of Melton. This includes drop-in programs offering a safe space to hang out, meet new friends, engage in fun activities and find out about other services for youth. The City of Melton Youth Services is committed to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all young people.

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.
