Can We Help?
Can we help? is a community awareness initiative of the City of Wagga Wagga.
Throughout January 2017, Wagga Wagga City Council, with the assistance of Mission Australia, developed a community awareness initiative geared at vulnerable young people. You may notice these eye catching posters on bus shelters across the city, aimed at addressing four critical areas facing our youth today. These include homelessness, mental health, food relief and disability.
They provide young people with easy access to information about a range of community services, community groups and government organisations, who can provide assistance in these four areas.
A youth services map has also been compiled containing further details of additional services and programs for young people across the city.
Please note, if you are unsure of where to go or who to call regarding your mental health, please seek assistance from your General Practitioner (Doctor). There are also a range of 24 hour crisis telephone numbers, these can be found below.
If you are experiencing an emergency however, please call 000.
For other community services that may be available, please search using Wagga Wagga City Council's online Community Directory.
