Meet our Youth Workers
Meet Darren and Sarah, our dedicated youth workers at Western Sydney MRC. Our youth workers play a critical role in helping youths to strengthen attachment through developing and maintaining meaningful relationships.
Casework, advocacy, information and referral
Young people continue to access Western Sydney MRC’s services to be supported through casework, information and referral, advocacy, and to develop the skills and capacity to address the various issues that they face.
Education and employment pathways continue to be the primary concern of young people, as they seek support in identifying their options regarding work and study as relevant to their skills and personal experience.
Self-regulation by finding ways to understand and express emotions

Learning to celebrate and respect diversity
Respecting themselves and others
Our Programs include:
We can offer information and support with:
- Individual Casework
- Free Homework Support
- Information and advice around your options for work and study
- Sports and fun activities happening around Liverpool and at the MRC
- Applying for funding and developing your own programs, excursions or events
- Referrals to youth organisations
We offer one on one casework for our young community assisting them with identifying goals both personal and professional. Our youth workers assist with identifying options to achieve their goals and supporting them through to accomplish. This often involves assisting young people in creating resumes and applying for jobs, coaching and interview practice runs.
Overall, our approach is to ensure that our youth workers create a positive relationship with young people, supporting them in day to day life challenges. We aim to build skills and ‘coping mechanisms’ to ensure that when they leave our service they are well equipped to tackle whatever life may bring their way. And that they stay in touch as they move along life’s journey.
