home base

where you belong


Home Base came out of the ‘Hands Up Mallee – Project Y’ workshop with local youth earlier this year (2018).

The workshop extended on the extensive consultative data already gathered around local youth issues which provided them the opportunity for their voices to be heard.

  • identifying challenges and potential opportunities

  • creating real practical solutions

  • develop an awareness campaign to present to local community, business and agencies about what matters to youth

  • Encourage the community to engage or partner in future projects


the home base mission

Home Base provides youth with life skills and gives them a local safe place that allows them to develop through the engagement of activities and meeting new people.

the home base vision

To give youth an opportunity to try new things in order to enhance their life skills and better their future. 

Home Base gives youth somewhere they feel safe and can get the help they need. And helps youth to get off the street by giving them an alternative place to go during the night. 

We would like to help those young people who are experiencing difficulties with their schooling and advocate for their future aspiration and develop in life so they are able to live a long and sustainable life.
