Whitelion is a not-for-profit organisation that assists at-risk young people who have become disconnected from society due to abuse, neglect, drug addiction or poverty. The innovative Young Women's Support Service (YWSS) works with young women who have been involved in, or are at-risk of contact, with the Youth Justice or Out-of-Home Care systems.

YWSS addresses a range of issues faced by this target group through a holistic, personalised approach working to improve wellbeing, access to services, self-confidence and health-based education.
