The WGRC provides a low cost, comprehensive, community based one to one support service to adolescents who may be experiencing emotional and behavioural difficulties. This is provided by professional WGRC support workers.
Our approach is to build upon individual strengths and acknowledge the central role of the adolescent in decision making. The active participation of families is built into each intervention plan ensuring that our work makes lasting differences in the life of each adolescent we work with.
The service aims to intervene to provide the adolescent with the necessary supports to promote psychological resilience and maintain their psychological well-being, regardless of social or emotional background. Anyone concerned about an adolescent aged between 13 and under 18 years, can make a referral to the service.
If you would like to refer an adolescent or know more about this service please contact the WGRC office on 01 4198630
