Support Services

At Youi, we understand that there may be times in your life where you experience moments of vulnerability. We get it, and we get that vulnerability also affects different people in different ways. We also understand that you may have trouble communicating with Youi. That’s why we’ve got additional support services in place designed to help you.

How we can help

We encourage our clients experiencing vulnerability to tell us about their circumstances, so that we can work with them to identify how we can best support them. We’ll treat them with sensitivity, dignity, respect and compassion, and will work with them to provide the appropriate support. This includes referral to our Priority Assistance Team if they choose, or information on additional support services where appropriate.

Family and domestic violence

At Youi, we recognise that domestic and family violence (DFV) is a serious issue afflicting the wider Australian community. As part of our ongoing commitment to assisting clients and employees who may be affected by it, we’ve created this document to outline ways in which we help support victims and enable them to speak out.

Financial hardship

Youi aims to provide prompt financial hardship support to affected clients, as part of our commitment to providing extra support to clients experiencing vulnerability – including those impacted by family and domestic violence. This may include fast-tracking financial hardship requests, showing compassion when processing financial hardship applications and providing assistance and flexibility with payments owing.
