ANNUAL REPORT 2014-15
YFS' supportive people always see
the potential in other people.
Supportive people are people-focused.
They encourage others to pursue greater development of their strengths. They’re passionate and empathetic.
They take the time to understand the abilities of each individual and teach them how to use them to achieve extraordinary results.
“What I do with young people and families, is work alongside them to assist them to be the best advocates they can be for themselves. Sometimes, I’m called to be their voice.”
“IRAS is YFS’ front door.
What makes IRAS different is that we deal with anything; we don’t have constraints like other organisations that only deal with specific issues.”
“I think in terms of having a new program come out, getting some really great outcomes early on, establishing ourselves pretty quickly, getting stuck into the work as quickly as we were able to and getting things happening shows that YFS can be really adaptive and responsive.”
“When you start seeing change in men’s behaviour, those are exciting and hopeful moments where you get that element of ‘we are making a change."
