Programs & Services
EDYS, which is the hub for the Youth & Family program from Sutherland Shire Family Services, offers a range of programs and services to assist you and your family in dealing with the stresses of been a teenager and dealing with life.
Outreach Program – Our Youth & Family Worker can assist you and/or your family by providing emotional and practical support, advocacy, information, and resources, with a non-judgmental attitude and in a safe and friendly manner.
We offer an ongoing calendar of Youth Programs, which are offered either via schools or in-house programs to encourage personal development and practical support for teens.
Parenting Programs – EDYS doesn’t just help teens – we help their families too. We offer a range of parenting programs to help your parents and carers have a better understanding of the issues you face. If your parents are interested in learning more, get them to check out the “Parents Section“ of the website.
Access to information – Need some help on a particular topic and not sure where to go? Our experienced youth workers are super connected in the community and know how to sort through what you’re being told on the TV and internet. Whether it’s health, relationships, work and fair pay, family, global affairs, school/alternative education stuff, sexuality, legal matters or dealing with Police, we can help you develop your critical thinking skills to do your own research, know what your options are and get you help when and if you need it.
