Belmore Youth Resource Centre.

The Belmore Youth Resource Centre is a multi-purpose resource centre catering for the needs of the City of Canterbury's youth located at Building 3, 38-40 Redman Parade, Belmore NSW. The Centre was developed in response to the need to provide programs and services to support local young people and resource youth services across our City.

Twenty years since its official opening on 27 August 1994, BYRC has up to 40 young people accessing the centre on any given day, and houses Council staff who provide outside school activities, support, information and advice and referral pathways. In addition, there are approximately 20 casual user groups catering to a wide range of youth needs including disability respite services, cultural programs, sports clubs and drug and alcohol issues. The BYRC also houses a variety of youth services that offer a range of programs, which are accessible to Canterbury City's youth aged 12-24 years. These services include Barnardos Streetwork and Reconnect, Canterbury Multicultural Youth Health Service and Centrelink.[1]
