Sunday Telegraph reports Youth Insearch saves the Community tens of millions.


On the 13th of November, Youth Insearch was featured in the Sunday Telegraph and Courier Mail. The article made a compelling argument ,citing the tens of millions Youth Insearch saves the community a year. What is more the figures only relate to the amount saved due to preventing young people being incarcerated. The actual figures are much higher. 

Every week we see young people making significant changes in their lives. We see young people stop committing crimes, stop using drugs, returning to school and we see young people who were "un-placeable" due to behaviour, now being placed into family foster care. The Sunday Telegraph reported that the Federal Government had cut  funding to Youth Insearch, while this is true, we have been working hard to replace this loss with other sources. We would like to thank all those supporters who have increased their contributions and for those new supporters who have joined to support us.
