Individual support and Case Management
Case management includes risk assessment and identification of the young person’s issues and needs. The young person and Street Net staff collaboratively develop a support plan that includes a summary of the young person’s issues and needs, the goals the young person would like to achieve, and strategies to achieve those goals.
Street Net also supports and assists young people to connect with other appropriate services, their peers and communities, and to improve relationships with their families.
The service provides one to one intensive support and follow-up to develop individual strategies including appropriate referrals. This includes strategies and programs designed to meet young peoples’ needs. Services are also provided to people outside of this group where appropriate, for example to parents, carers and siblings of the young person.
Home visits and Outreach
Street Net staff conduct regular outreach patrols which include visits to schools, shopping centres, parks and reserves, youth events and areas frequented by young people in the Peel Region.
Staff conduct home visits for the purpose of liaising with Case Management clients and their families.
Diversional and recreational activities are provided for the purpose of engaging with young people. They are provided in a safe environment where young people have positive interactions with peers and adults, and the opportunity to access information and educational activities, as well as case management support.
Street Net and Allambee Counselling co-facilitate the Respectful Relationships Workshop within local schools.
The workshop is targeted at students in Years 7 – 12, and is an interactive discussion on issues relating to healthy relationships, sexual consent and sexual violence, modern communication devices and their impact on sexual violence. The workshop highlights Protective Behaviour themes, and encourages students to develop skills to keep themselves safe and promote respectful interpersonal relationships.
