About Mackay Youth Support Services Inc.

Our Vision

All young people, their families and extended support networks in the Mackay region are valued and supported socially, emotionally and educationally.

Our staff will work collaboratively with young people to improve relationships with family and community, to enhance opportunities and support them in achieving their potential.




Mackay Youth Support Services Inc has been working for 18 years and currently provides services under the Family Support Service (or U-nite Program).  The program delivers counselling, mediation and support services to young people and their families.

The service targets the families of young people at risk of not completing their education.  This is a unique service and complements, supports and enhances the work done in schools with young people.  The service works with families within the Mackay area who require support, parenting skills, mediation and counselling to support and improve relationships within their family.

Mackay Youth Support Services Inc is co-located with CASA (Community Accommodation & Support Agency), who provide assistance and support to families and individuals with housing needs in Mackay.

Referrals to Mackay Youth Support Services can be made by other agencies, non-government or government or by self referral.
