Fremantle Community Youth Services


Fremantle Community Youth Services began in 1977 in a three-bedroom home on Quarry Street, Fremantle, offering short to medium term accommodation to young people. It was run by the City of Fremantle, and, between 1985 and 1989, it was run by Mofflyn Child and Famiyl Care Services. In 2001 the service offered medium and long term housing to approximately 36 young people, some of whom have families, in up to 26 units.

Fremantle Community Youth Services is described in the Western Australian guide Signposts as a 3-bedroom house owned by the Fremantle City Council. In the early and mid-1980’s, the service was targeted to 15-18 year old males and females who were not yet able to live independently, and provided short to medium term accommodation. There was back-up social worker support for young people with particular difficulties.

Between 1985 and 1989 Fremantle Community Youth Services was run by Mofflyn Child and Family Care Services. It was returned to the City of Fremantle in 1989. From January 1988 residential care was no longer provided at the Quarry Street house, and Fremantle Community Youth Services instead provided referral and support services from Quarry street, and accommodated young people in a number of externally supported houses and flats.

In 2001 the Fremantle Community Youth Services – Accommodation provided services for young people and young families with the South West Metropolitan Zone of Family and Children’s Services, and in particular within the City of Fremantle. The service externally supported approximately 36 young people, some of whom have families, in up to 26 housing units of medium and long term accommodation. The service was co-located with a number of other youth services which operate from 7 Quarry Street, Fremantle. (Service Agreement with the Department for Community Development).
