About Us

Who Are We

Our Space, an initiative of Ryde Council, was established in January 2014 when Oasis Youth Support Network, Christian Community Aid Youth Outreach and The Northern Centre came together to combine their resources and experience to create an integrated youth hub for local young people; making their wide range of unique services available in a safe and central location. Whether young people require assistance with school, want to learn skills that will help them in the future, need some help and guidance in their lives, or simply want to just come in and hang out; Our Space is a place in their community where all of this is possible.

A model was developed by the service providers of Our Space to guide and focus the program offerings.

There are some great opportunities available at Our Space including:

  • Alternative Education
  • Counselling
  • TAFE Outreach programs
  • Homework Help
  • After School and School Holiday Programs
  • Programs that help you get jobs
    • Chill Out Space
    • Community Garden Projects
    • Work Skills
    • Create your own business at Our Space

And loads more…

Come along during drop in sessions (see timetable for up to date info) and find out how you can get involved. Our friendly team have always got time for a chat. You can take part in any of our programs, or just come in, hang out, and see what’s going on.
