Taldumande Youth Services is a for-purpose organisation that supports vulnerable and homeless children and young people aged 12 to 21 years, and their families. Based in Northern Sydney and the Northern Beaches, we support young people from all across Sydney. On any given night Taldumande has 65 children and young people in residence. We operate three 24/7 and two semi-independent accommodation programs and also offer community housing programs that provide a streamlined pathway, from homelessness and family breakdown, to independence and stability. Taldumande also provides residential support to young people who are under the supervision of Juvenile Justice in our Young Offenders Intervention Program and we also focus on preserving and restoring families with young people 12 to 15 in our Family Preservation and Restoration Program.
