Tender open: Establish and operate headspace Glen Iris

Friday, 25 September 2020

South Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Network (SEMPHN) is pleased to invite eligible organisations to tender to be the lead agency for the new headspace centre delivering a service model responsive to the needs of young people and families residing/studying/working and/or have connections to Glen Iris and surrounding areas.

The successful lead agency will work collaboratively with headspace National and SEMPHN staff to establish the service.

About headspace

headspace centres act as a one-stop shop for young people aged 12-25 who need help with mental health, physical health (including sexual health), alcohol and other drugs or work and study support.

headspace centres across Australia are designed not just for young people, but with them, to ensure they are relevant, accessible and highly effective. As a result, no two headspace centres are the same, each offering unique services that are responsive to the needs of its local community.

At the heart of headspace centres' services is an assurance that young people can access health workers in a safe, confidential and youth-friendly environment.
