Youth Connections policies are reviewed and updated to reflect our values and any changes in the sector that impact Youth Connections and our customers. Youth Connections is committed to pursuing the rights and principles of equality, independence, choice and inclusion that underpin a person-centred philosophy. We promote the implementation of person-centred approaches to planning and practice to support young people to develop and maintain their skills and capacities, and to have a lifestyle based on their own interests and aspirations.


We recognise that all young people have the right to feel valued and have the opportunity to participate fully in life in society as they choose. Youth Connections is committed to promoting a positive image of young people, recognising that this can positively influence self-esteem and provide opportunities for enhanced citizenship through their inclusion in the community.


We believe every young person is entitled to the best life possible, and we want to assist them to achieve this. Our policies are the structures in which we operate, creating our community programs and adapting our services to reflect our policies and values.
