Bravehearts’ Turning Corners is a comprehensive and integrated therapeutic response to working with young people who have engaged in or are at risk of engaging in, harmful sexual behaviour (HSB). The program has recently expanded in both eligibility and service delivery for clients residing across Queensland.
Turning Corners’ newly launched service, Turning Corners Restorative Justice (funded through the Department of Child Safety, Youth and Multicultural Affairs), supports young people aged between 10 and 17 years (and their families) at the time of engaging in harmful sexual behaviour. In addition to the young people engaging in HSB, Bravehearts’ specialist clinicians and advocates will also be supporting the children and young people who have been harmed by this behaviour, and their families or significant others. Referrals to Turning Corners Restorative Justice are received directly from Youth Justice QLD and will not be accepted from any other source.
Bravehearts’ Turning Corners Community Service (funded through Hand Heart Pocket), will continue to support youth aged between 12 and 17 (and up to 21 for individuals with an intellectual impairment), who have engaged or are at risk of engaging, in harmful sexual behaviour. Our community team can accept referrals from parents, other NGOs, schools and Government Departments such as Child Safety.
If you are unsure about eligibility or are seeking further information, please contact the Bravehearts Information and Support Line on 1800272831 and our team will be able to assist you.
