Youth Services

Bassendean Youth Services offers a range of structured and unstructured programs for young people in the 12 - 25 age range.  These include recreational activities, support services, and referral to specialist agencies.

Services Include

'Open Access' Program

Youth Services delivers an unstructured recreation and support program four afternoons a week offering access to facilities, IT, and individual support. The aim of the program is to provide positive recreational opportunities in a supervised environment, allowing for the development of longer-term support relationships and future referral to specialist services.

Youth Advisory Council

The Town of Bassendean's Youth Advisory Council is facilitated by Bassendean Youth Services and incorporates a group of young people aged between 12 and 21 years who meet monthly to discuss youth issues at a local, regional, State and Federal level, as well as organising local and regional youth events.

Dudley Robinson Youth Grant

The aim of the Dudley Robinson Youth Grant is to support individuals to strive toward developing their potential in their chosen pursuit.  Individuals can apply for a grant to represent the State or Commonwealth in a recognised sporting, performance arts, academic achievement event, or to attend youth leadership activities.
