Community Referrals

BSYS is a State government funded service providing support to young people ages 12 – 18, and/or their families, across the Bellingen Shire.  Whilst we are primarily based in Bellingen we also outreach to all other areas of the Shire. We do this in the following ways:

Case Management

We offer early intervention support to families, with the intention of preventing crises from occurring.  We provide support for up to 3 months and there is the option of extending this support for a further 3 months in order to meet your required goals.  Case management is confidential, voluntary and your privacy is respected.

Programs & Workshops

From time to time we will offer programs and workshops for young people and their families focusing on living skills and personal development for young people, as well as parenting support.

We take referrals from other organisations, schools, health services, parents and young people. If you would like to refer a young person to us please fill out our referral form and either email it to us or print and fax. Please feel free to phone us first to discuss any concerns or clarify any aspects of our service.
