Community Detention Program for 18-25 Males and families
MYC in partnership with DIAC is currently responsible for the delivering the range of services to clients who are 18-25 males and families in community detention. This includes supporting clients to live in the community in accordance with the conditions of their placement and ensuring the client's care and wellbeing while in community detention.
As part of their community detention placement, clients are to adhere to a set of conditions which dictate their behaviour whilst in community detention. Clients will transition out of the community detention when they are granted a substantive visa and are settled in Australia, or their community detention placement is revoked and they are returned into a detention facility or depart Australia. We also offer volunteer opportunities for male and female adults to contribute to local government areas and businesses.
While clients are in community detention, MYC will be supporting clients during the transition period out of community detention. This will involve preparing the client to depart from the community detention program property while working with DIAC Humanitarian Settlement Strategy services.
