Ace support for local youth

An impromptu game of ping-pong proved a novel way to engage and educate students at a well-received youth expo.

Three members from the Wayss’ Dandenong Youth team attended the Wellbeing Expo at Dandenong High School on Monday, 26 August.

Wayss joined many community agencies to organise stalls for students to access, so they could learn more about what support networks are available in the local area.

The youth team got creative with their stall through initiating a ping-pong activity. This proved both fun and educational, as students had a great time and the Wayss stall was very popular, with gift bags provided.

The event enabled Dandenong High School and community agencies to collaborate to organise a safe space for students to learn about wellbeing.

Wayss in the 1990s

Then in September 1997 the organisation became WAYSS Limited with a Board of Directors and day to day management by the Chief Executive Officer.

Wayss underwent further transformation with the restructure of community housing and the funding of the Transitional Housing Management (THM) program. The Regional Housing Council ceased operation and transferred direct service operations to Wayss in 1997.

During this decade Wayss became responsible for the then South East Women’s Domestic Violence Outreach Service. Funding was also received to establish a Children’s Services Worker within the outreach service. SAAP funded Women’s Outreach Program was also transferred to Wayss in 1999.
