The main funders of Glebe Youth Service are the Department of Family and Community Services (FACS) and the City of Sydney Council. Other contributions are made through donations and small grants from other agencies as well as through fundraising activities for specific programs.
The funding from FACS is under the Early Intervention and Placement Prevention Program and the current funding runs to June 2017. This program sits well with GYS beliefs in that it recognises increased investment in prevention and early intervention programs that have the capacity to deliver both immediate benefits to children and young people and enhance the long-term wellbeing of families and the community.
The funding from City of Sydney for the ‘After Dark’ program is until the end of 2017. The funding has been crucial in initiating the process of engagement with young people and building service trust.
