Support Us

Support the cause and get involved today

There are a number of ways you can support us. Let’s work together to make a real and lasting difference to the lives of young people dealing with mental health issues.

Hold a fundraising event

Our organisation relies heavily on support from the corporate and community sectors so that we can keep our life-changing services free to young people.

If you’re interested in making a difference in the lives of young Western Australians by raising much-needed funds through hosting your own fundraising event, please get in touch here.

Participate in a community event

Whether you are participating in a community fundraising event or hosting your own, all funds raised contribute to the growth and delivery of Youth Focus services. View upcoming community fundraising opportunities here.

Volunteer your time

Volunteering is a great way for people based in Perth to support Youth Focus and the young people we assist.

Volunteering opportunities fall into the following categories:

Helping out at an event

Every year, we coordinate many events to raise much-needed funds, or to create awareness of mental health issues and our services.  At some of these events, we rely on the support of volunteers. The need for event-related volunteers varies throughout the year, but if you are interested in being listed on our volunteer database, please email here.

Mentoring

Youth Focus is an active member of the Australian Youth Mentoring Network and WA Youth Mentoring Network and is committed to delivering a mentoring program which provides complimentary support to a young person, outside of their counselling.
