ASeTTS recognises that young people are affected by trauma too. As well as issues arising from exposure to torture and trauma, ASeTTS youth program NAYS (Newly Arrived Youth Service) focuses on assisting and supporting young people and their families to strengthen family relationships, reconcile family differences, develop skills and behaviours that promote safety, develop the independence of young people and more.

  • Newly Arrived Youth Services (NAYS) NAYS delivers services to newly arrived young people who have arrived in Australia in the previous five years to assist them to overcome personal and social barriers and to increase their social and economic participation in Australian society.

The program operates in a culturally and appropriate specific manner through consultation processes with new and emerging community representatives, the use of multicultural consultants, and interpreters.

The service retains a high level of flexibility, with a focus on a strength based and solution focused approach, and outreach services.

NAYS (Newly Arrived Youth Service) provides advocacy and counselling for young people. For further information please contact ASeTTS on 9227 2700.
