Youth Support

We're By Your Side

Supporting Young People

We help and guide both you and your family through most legal situations, and make it easier for you to understand what’s happening around you.

Our Youth Legal Support Work

Our Children Court Assistance Scheme (CCAS) Coordinator is available at Broad Meadow (Monday) Wyong (Tuesday List Days) and Woy Woy (Friday) at the Children’s Court.

If you are appearing at Court the CCAS Coordinator is there when you arrive to make sure you have access to Legal Advice, understand what will happen on the day and to offer support in the Court if you have no-one available.

You can speak with the CCAS Coordinator if you need help with accessing other support services in the community, they will be able to speak to you, your family or support person about what is available and can refer and introduce you to these services. 

Who Do We Help?

We help anyone living, working or studying on the NSW Central Coast with a legal problem who can’t afford a lawyer, but we give priority to young people who are the most vulnerable and disadvantaged.

This includes:

  • People who are Centrelink recipients or experiencing financial hardship
  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
  • People living with a disability or mental illness
  • People experiencing family violence 
  • People at risk of homelessness

If you do not fit any of these categories we will provide you with general information and advice so you can help yourself. This can actually be a much faster way to solve your problem.

Our experienced team can help you with a variety of legal problems. 

If you are appearing at the Children’s Court, our Children’s Court Assistance Scheme (CCAS) Coordinator is there to make sure you know what will happen on the day and to support you through the legal process.

We’re Here To Help You Right Now

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the lands on which we live and work here on the NSW Central Coast. We pay respect to the Darkinyung people, their Elders both past and present and their youth who are their future leaders. This is Aboriginal land, Darkinjung land. Always was Always will be, sovereignty never ceded.
