Legal Support & Diversion
BushMob was developed to help young people in the Northern Territory aged 12-25 who are experiencing issues with alcohol, drugs and sniffing.
BushMob operates a 20 bed residential facility as well as providing outreach and support to young people and families.
BushMob runs a residential program in Alice Springs for young people wanting to get their lives back on track without alcohol, drugs or sniffing. The program allows each participant the option of a support person who can stay with them for a few days when they begin the program. The program requires the participants to undertake alcohol and other drug assessments, receive medical checkups and receive counselling. The BushMob residential program is a very unique program, tailored to meet the needs of young people living in Central Australia.

YWCA Australia – Youth Diversion Program
The Youth Diversion Program diverts young people aged 10-17 away from the justice system, by providing case management and support to help them address the underlying reasons for their offending behaviour.
Every young person participating in the program helps develop their own individually tailored support plan, looking at all the factors contributing to the offence. These plans can include: their home environment, substance abuse, education, employment, health, financial, legal, family, accommodation or homelessness, transport, and their social networks.
The program is a collaboration between YWCA, Danila Dilba Health Services and the Northern Territory Youth Diversion Police Unit.
