Last week our Registered Nurse from PYMS answered the call from local service provider to help young homeless people access COVID-19 vaccination.
Passages is a youth engagement hub providing a non-judgmental safe space to our communities’ most marginalised and at risk young people in Perth and Peel. A hub where young people aged 12 to 25 years have a safe, friendly and positive place to access support and referrals to essential services.
It is our mission to help the most vulnerable and disadvantaged in the communities we live and work in. Collaborating with other service providers amplifies the impact we can make and we were happy to partner with Passages to reduce the barriers young and vulnerable people face in accessing health care. There are now 30 young people who are on their way to full vaccination. “You can’t always get clients to come to you. Sometimes you have to meet them where they are.”
GP down south is an exemplary not-for-profit community organisation. We have been providing health and wellbeing services in the Peel regions and the South West of WA since 1994.
