Organisation type: Youth support service
Bailey is 16 years old and left home 8 months ago. She lives in a regional town with limited employment options for young people. Since leaving home Bailey has stayed with various friends and tried living with her grandmother (Karen). She moves around, staying with friends when she can. She heard about the youth support service as a place for food and to charge her phone. After visiting several times for emergency assistance, Bailey has been referred for ongoing support and case management services. At this time she has no stable accommodation and is not working or attending school. Her mother (Frida) and stepfather (Michael) live in a smaller town close by. Her biological father lives in Malaysia and she has not had contact with him since she was 3 years old. Bailey has an older sister, Dana (age 21) who attends university interstate. Bailey has told the youth service she gets along ok with her mother and sister but the reason she does not return home is because she does not get along with her stepfather. She used to see the school counsellor when she attended school but had never told her mother about this.
