The Base Support Services
Want local support from people who care?
Life can be challenging sometimes. That’s why we seek to understand and provide tailored support to help individuals, families, and the broader Goodna, Ipswich and Western suburbs communities.
What is Family and Youth Support Services?
The Base Support Services Inc. Family and Youth Support Services (FAYSS) Program is funded by the Department of Youth Justice, Employment, Small Business and Training to deliver a youth offender focussed program within the Ipswich and Western Districts regions.
Our dedicated case workers recognise that life isn’t always easy and doesn’t always go to plan. We are focused on helping you to figure out positive ways to move forward with your life and will support you to achieve your goals.
We can also help other family members that you live with to help them to be in a better position to support you.
