TSS has an ‘open door’ policy which ensures that all young people receive a service tailored to their needs.

When clients contact TSS, they will speak to one of our intake workers who will conduct an assessment to determine the most appropriate course of action.

After an initial assessment with a TSS worker, clients may:

  • develop a tailored care plan in conjunction with their worker to support positive health outcomes
  • receive a service to meet an immediate need and then be referred to a more appropriate service provider for ongoing support
  • receive information and referral to a more appropriate service provider.

Contact TSS by phone (08) 8255 3477 or in person:

  • Monday 10:00am–5:00pm (Check as times can vary on a Monday)
