Anglicare Youth House, in West Perth, was established by Anglicare WA in 1994 replacing the Carlisle Group House. It provided support and medium term accomodation for six young people aged 16-19 years in a group house setting. Anglicare Youth House was open until at least 1995 and was possibly also known as 'Youth House'.
According to a government report in 1995 (quoted in Signposts, 2004 p.86), Anglicare Youth House offered a supportive accommodation program that aimed to build 'well-being' through restoring a sense of 'dignity, independence and self-worth' in the young residents.
Anglicare Youth House is known to have been open in 1995, but it is not known if it continued beyond that time.
