Bridges Reconnect

100 Railway Parade, Woodridge QLD, Australia

Welcome to Bridges Reconnect at Woodridge. We provide support to young people between the ages of 12 and 18 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. We help you stabilise your living situation and give you the skills to build your own future through counselling, group work, mediation and practical support to the whole family. We are there for you.

Figure it out. Get it sorted. Build a future.

At Bridges Reconnect, we assist young people to:

  • stay at home until they have the necessary skills to become independent
  • connect with supports if they have become homeless
  • access counselling, mediation and general support to re-engage with their life, and
  • better deal with conflict within the family home
  • access programs that build self esteem, life skills and relationship skills

We also provide confidential advice and services to help you stay in school when things get tough or support you with alternative education. We can also link you up with employment or training options and help you apply for income support through Centrelink (if eligible).
