And this is why the wellbeing of young people will always be a significant part of what SYC does.

From its inception in 1958, SYC has worked with young people who have experienced disadvantage. For much of our 60 year history, we only worked with young people. In 1995 we began working with people of all ages in our Working Portfolio.

SYC was known until very recently as a youth organisation and many would still describe us as such. It’s true that despite two thirds of the people we work with being older than 25 years, we retain the same deep commitment to young people as we always have. We still offer a broad range of specialist services designed for young people, all of which contribute to their overall wellbeing.

Our practice development will always seek innovative ways to improve the life outcomes achieved by the young people we work with.
