WA Youth Services - Live Status Update
Early in the COVID-19 crisis, YACWA created the Youth Services Live Status Portal as a means for services to inform the youth sector and young people of their changes to their programs, capacity and intake.
As Western Australia relaxes restrictions and organisations begin to resume some of their regular programming, we encourage services to keep their information up to date for clients and referral services.
If you've previously entered your service information, simply fill out this form again with the status of your service to update your information.

In the interim, YACWA is coordinating a live status portal for youth services across Western Australia, detailing what exists, how services have changed, capacity to take on new clients.
If your organisation has services and locations, please provide a separate entry for each location and service.
The information entered into this form will populate the WA Youth Services Live Status spreadsheet, a list of the current youth services, which will be linked on YACWA’s website and social media.
Please note that the email you enter in the first question will be publicly displayed. If you don’t wish this for potential clients and other youth services to see this email, enter your organisation’s generic contact email.
If you’ve filled out this form once and wish to update the status of your service, simply fill it out again using the same email, or contact
with the changes you’d like to make.
Please also note: The Department of Communities is also working on a Community Sector Partnerships COVID-19 Data Exchange process and there will be a more comprehensive request for service data in the coming months.
