safeSPACE is PCYC’s core Diversionary Program for vulnerable children and young people at risk.
Operating as an After School Hours Program provides young people with a safe place to go – somewhere they can feel at home, make friends and take part in fun activities.
When children and young people live too far to walk to a Centre, the PCYC can provide transport to safeSPACE sessions, collecting them and taking them home at the end of the session, providing healthy snacks and dinner before transporting them home.
A huge range of activities are offered at safeSPACE Programs, from basketball to skating, bike riding, arts and crafts, cooking, and help with homework, as well as a chance to hang out with friends in a safe, supportive environment.
As well as entertaining children and young people, the safeSPACE Program plays a vital role keeping them safe. As young people build relationships with PCYC staff and trust them to talk to, this provides an avenue for PCYC to refer to other agencies and services that can help with further issues such as their mental health, family violence and drug abuse.
This facility offers a large range of youth oriented programs, workshops, events and activities every week and throughout the year. Featuring a multi-purpose building, the youth hub is a youth friendly zone and a safe place where young people can develop new skills, enhance existing abilities and socialise with peers.
