Young people can self-refer for our crisis accommodation or be referred by any agency who has access to the Queensland Homelessness Information Platform (QHIP). QHIP is an electronic tool that facilitates access to vacancy and capacity information of specialist homelessness services across Queensland. QHIP allows organisations to undertake electronic assessment and referral to any specialist homelessness service.
If you are thinking of referring a friend or family member, we recommend you pass our contact details onto the young person so they can contact us, as referral can only take place with the consent of the young person. Family members and friends are welcome to contact us for general information.
