YAC’s  Bail and Order Support Service, generally referred to as BOSS provides an independent support service to young people from Gympie to the Gold Coast. It seeks to prevent young people spending time in custody pending their court matters being resolved only because of a lack of somewhere to live, by finding, and supporting them in, safe and appropriate accommodation. It also supports young people to meet their obligations under supervised court orders post sentence.

BOSS referrals come from statutory youth justice services.

BOSS aims to:

  • Facilitate culturally appropriate placements and intervention for young people on bail and orders
  • Provide courts with a legitimate supported accommodation option to remanding young people in custody

Target Group:

  1. Young people who are presently remanded in custody due to insufficient placement stability
  2. Young people who are on bail but at risk of being remanded in custody due to insufficient placement stability
  3. Young people who are on supervised court orders who need support to comply with the order.

As with all YAC services, BOSS is a free, confidential and voluntary program.
