BEROS expands to new locations

Brisbane Emergency Response Outreach Service (BEROS) has expanded to the lower part of the North Coast Child Safety region, working with young people case-managed by Strathpine, Caboolture, Morayfield, and Redcliffe Child Safety Service Centres. The expansion is for a 6 month trial period, with potential for ongoing funding. The expansion will operate with the same model as BEROS Brisbane, with Outreach Case Management, BEROS Street to Home, and BEROS overnight support. BEROS has opened a second house as the North Coast home base and overnight support, with fourteen new staff employed. Eligibility criteria to make a referral to the BEROS service include that a young person must be: 12-18 years of age, under a Child Safety Order from Brisbane Region Child Safety Service Centres, and Lower North Coast Child Safety Service Centres (Morayfield, Strathpine, Caboolture, Redcliffe), and identify as self-placing which includes sleeping rough or couch surfing. Referrals can come from NGO’s, Government Services, carers, Child Safety or a young person.
