During COVID-19 services changed how they operated, and we tried our best to keep you up to date on that. While this list is currently not relevant, we're keeping it up as a great list of services that support LGBTIQA+ young people. 

**Those listed are only services that have provided information to YPN, other services may be operating that are not listed here **

If you are a service or organisation and you'd like to be added to the list email ypn@yacwa.org.au
