Navigating the youth years (e.g. pre-teen, teen and early 20s) can be both fun and challenging at various times.
Young people and their families can sometimes need a little bit of assistance and support. This can be in the form of appropriate entertainment options, development activities, and support services.
While there aren't a lot of youth support services based in the Lockyer Valley, there are quite a few that provide services into or for young people who live, work or study in the Lockyer Valley.
The list below should be considered a starting point for accessing youth support services. The list doesn't cover every service, but those we've listed will be able to either provide the support you need or make a good referral to someone else who can.
Council appreciates the commitment these agencies make to the young people of our region.
