Northern Area Community & Youth Services Inc
Welcome to NACYS!
Established in 1981, NACYS has evolved in response to identified community need from 2 part time staff members in 1981 to 45 staff members in 2009. Its primary aim is community capacity building which occurs using Crisis Intervention, Social Inclusion, Human and Social Development and Community and Adult Education.
NACYS has three departments; Early Childhood Development; Crisis & Therapeutic Services; Community Capacity Building. A multi-modal, cross departmental approach is utilised to service the needs of a client group that faces complex, intergenerational disadvantage. Collaboration with a range of organisations occurs as a means of value adding to an under resourced area.
Our reason for being and our approach to issues has given rise to a range of unique and innovative projects.
