Whitelion is a not for profit community organisation that has been supporting highly vulnerable young people in the community for more than sixteen years. Whitelion opens doors to opportunities for youth at risk aged 10-24, with specialist youth outreach services including case management, housing, mentoring, education and employment programs. By connecting these young people back to their community, Whitelion provides our young people with practical and effective supports that enable them to make positive choices in their lives. The young people that Whitelion supports have seldom had positive influences in their lives; many come from backgrounds that are characterised by multi-generational disadvantage, unemployment, substance abuse and offending behaviour. These young people require consistent, practical and intensive support to break the cycle of disadvantage and reach their full potential. Whitelion delivers integrated programs & practice approaches that go to the heart of addressing youth disadvantage. Today with a service footprint across NSW, Vic, Tas, SA and WA Australia, Whitelion provides support to over 2,000 at risk and disadvantaged young people at any given time.
