Located in the heart of Melbourne, The Living Room powered by Youth Projects is a free primary health service for people at risk of, or experiencing homelessness in the central business district (CBD) of Melbourne. We are a dedicated and energetic multi-disciplinary team comprised of GPs, nurses, mental health & AOD specialists, welfare workers and complementary therapists. We recognise the complex and varying needs of our clients and offer a holistic model of care.
Youth Projects Limited provides front line support to individuals experiencing disadvantage, unemployment, homelessness, alcohol and other drug issues, and young people looking to re-engage with learning and employment. We are an Australian-based independent, registered charity.
Our mission is to provide life-changing, wrap-around support. Our connected model of support is rare in the community sector. We have always offered a holistic approach that combines multiple services in one place. Often people who are homeless don’t get all the help they need and frequently miss out on access to key needs like health or education, mental health support or help with drug problems, That’s why our model of help makes the most impact by tackling the hardest problems for people lost in the service system.
We are a non-judgmental service with a strong focus on respect, client-centred care and harm prevention.
