YFS is People


 Our year in review 2014-15 was an exciting year for the staff and Board of YFS. Amidst celebrations of our 30th birthday, we sharpened our focus on how we support vulnerable people to achieve sustainable change. We continued to redefine our role in helping our clients achieve the independence and participation they need for true social inclusion. We also refined our vision for the future of YFS and the Logan area. We developed a new strategic plan and a new Reconciliation Action Plan. We were at the forefront of collective action in Logan through Logan Together and the Logan Leadership Team, and we initiated #R4Respect, an exciting youth-led campaign to address domestic and family violence. In 2015-16 we will see further development as we implement our outcomes framework and build the strength of our organisation. Cath Bartolo, CEO and Albert Hili, Chair


YFS works with the people of Logan and surrounds

to build independence and participation – we envisage

a community of active people fully engaged

in economic, social and community life.


We are a team of skilled, committed people who are doing

great work now and looking towards an even better future.

In 2014-15 YFS made significant progress on key initiatives.

Our statistics are impressive. In this report, we focus on people:

our clients – the capable, active people who are building better lives, and our

steadfast, forward-thinking people who are working with them towards that goal.
