About Us

The Child, Youth & Family Gateway is a service for children, young people and families who are looking for help with the tough stuff, but are not sure where to go.

We have links to all kinds of programs & services that can support people to have the best chance to stay on track in their lives.

The Gateway is also for children, young people and families who might be (or are) involved with care and protection or community youth justice, and who would like support to work through what's happening.

We'll work with you from there to link you to the right sort of support, when you need it.

Contact Gateway on free call number 1800 647 831. Phone lines open Monday - Friday (9am - 5pm)

The Gateway is a partnership between Barnardos, Belconnen Community Service, Woden Community Service, YWCA Canberra and the ACT Government.
