Youth Point

The Youth Point is a mobile website service directory linking young people with the most appropriate services nearest to them. The mobile-friendly site aims to be accessible to young people, particularly those who are most vulnerable.

The Youth Point features organisations providing services for young people across the Sydney Local Health District and South Eastern Sydney Local Health District (SESLHD). The website acts as a point of contact for young people looking for assistance with accommodation, health services, case management, legal supports or employment/education. This service directory is also useful for youth workers and others working in the youth sector.

Peer Education and Youth Advisory Committee (PEYAC)

This project employs a diverse group of young people as peer educators and youth advisors for SESLHD. PEYAC delivers sexual health and harm reduction information and health promotion activities to other young people in the community. The group also provides a youth advisory function within the district, supporting health services to enhance their “youth friendliness” and engagement with young people.

"It's really amazing what they learned just from doing a five-minute quiz"
Peer Educator and Youth Advisor
"When you see someone coming in and they're really really nervous, and they don't really have any idea about it, you leave knowing that you've made a change, a positive change too."
Peer Educator and Youth Advisor


The project is led by HARP Health Promotion in partnership with the Youth Health Program and Kirketon Road Centre.
