Intercept wins Community Group of the Year
Lutheran Services’ Intercept Youth and Family Service has taken home the 2019 Moreton Bay Region Business Excellence and Innovation award for Community Group of the Year at a gala event held at Eaton Hill’s Hotel on Friday night 29th November.
The youth and family organisation has delivered programs and services to the Moreton Bay Region for over 12 years, supporting young people aged 10 up to 25 years of age.
Manager of the service Catherine White said “We really are a youth and family hub,” she said. “When clients come to us, they get a variety of supports – not just one program.”
The service offers eight programs ranging from family counselling, support for young people at risk of homelessness, mental health outreach, high school based support, alternative education, programs for young people in care and specialist disability support.
To broaden impact within the community, Intercept also offers a range of free after school group programs for adolescents, as well as free parent information and work shops on a monthly basis.
