Youth Info Card
Care For Life has developed and distributed the Youth Info Card since 1998 the card has since been updated and reprinted thirteen times - we have produced well in excess of 2 million cards over this period. .
The wallet sized card is available for distribution to young people throughout the Gold Coast. Organisations who access the card annually are State and Independent High Schools, TAFE Colleges, universities, public libraries, youth and community groups and government departments. Gold Coast Junior Council over the years have played an active role in supporting the card with the support of other organisations and grants. The aim of the card is to provide young people with easy access to information on services available to them particularly in times of crisis.
Research has shown that young people [males in particular] do not always ask the older generation [parents, teachers] for help when they need it. Surveys conducted in the past have shown that young people locally had very limited knowledge of services available to them.
Continual enquiries from schools and service providers indicate that there is a continual and ongoing need for the cards to be available for distribution throughout the Gold Coast and we are proud to regularly update this in conjunction with other organisations such as Headspace and Gold Coast Youth Council.
Under construction currently and soon will be available on Google Play and App Store
