South Western Sydney PHN (SWSPHN) welcomes Grand Pacific Health as the new lead agency of headspace Liverpool. Grand Pacific Health is a recognised health service provider and is currently the Lead Agency for six headspace centres across NSW.
Grand Pacific Health is taking over management of headspace Liverpool from The Benevolent Society commencing 1 July 2022.
SWSPHN’s Mental Health and Alcohol and Other Drugs Manager, Jade Weidner, said headspace Liverpool offers a vital service in supporting the mental health, physical health (including sexual), alcohol and other drugs, and work and study needs of young people aged 12 to 25 in the Liverpool area and surrounds. headspace is one of many services funded by SWSPHN to improve access to mental health services in South Western Sydney.
“We thank The Benevolent Society and Grand Pacific Health for working closely together over the last six months, and with SWSPHN and headspace National, to ensure a smooth transition of headspace Liverpool services for young people and their families,” Ms Weidner said.
SWSPHN thanks The Benevolent Society for their exceptional work in delivering headspace Liverpool during the past eight years, and their management of the smooth handover to Grand Pacific Health. SWSPHN also welcomes Grand Pacific Health as the new Lead Agency of headspace Liverpool, ensuring continuity of the headspace service for young people in South Western Sydney.
The change does not impact the services on offer at headspace Liverpool, which will continue to operate at 1/50 Macquarie Street, Liverpool, NSW 2170 and can be contacted by phone on 02 8107 6100, email [email protected], or visit their website headspace.org.au/headspace-centres/liverpool
Young people do not need a referral to access the service.
