the 2022 Help Street Foundation Grants program has funded the following projects
KickStart Mentoring Program. KickStart provides one-on-one mentoring to at-risk young people (YP) in the North Shore, Northern Beaches and Hornsby-Ku-ring-gai communities. The Program is YP-centred, place-based and focuses on providing an end-to-end solution. Each participant has an individually developed case management plan, documenting their short and long-term goals as well as a final ‘graduation’ strategy. StreetWork’s Youth Case Workers determine areas of change in partnership with each participant and support them to achieve their goals.
National Centre for Childhood Grief
Bereavement counselling to children aged 3 to 18 years from the Chatswood-Willoughby region. We are one of few services that specialise in child bereavement counselling and we provide this as a free and unlimited service up until adulthood. In offering counselling for free, the NCCG removes the financial barrier which frequently prevents bereaved families, who are often financially compromised following the death of a significant provider or primary caregiver, from seeking support.
Clinical team learning and development to improve knowledge and skills, the development of a group program targeted to parents/ carers who are seeking support and the delivery and measurement of clinical outcomes of young people who receive care from KYDS.
