Supporting our Youth

ITEC Youth (previously Safe Pathways) was established in 2011 by ITEC Group Australia’s Managing Director, Lynn Walker; to provide child protection and residential care homes in Northern Territory and Queensland.

Now operating under the umbrella of ITEC Group Australia, ITEC Youth has grown to provide services in Queensland, Northern Territory and New South Wales with a view to expand further nationally.  



ITEC Group Australia is dedicated to ensuring children and youth who have entered the statutory child protection service are placed within safe, culturally appropriate, foster and kinship programs.




ITEC Group Australia works in conjunction with the Torres Strait Island Safe House program to provide highly experienced intervention specialists that take into account the needs of the young person and their family.


ITEC Group Australia understand the importance of ensuring our young people feel safe and supported while transitioning to independent living arrangements and endeavour to provide age, gender and culturally appropriate services.

Our Goals

ITEC Group Australia take great care in ensuring all services provided are not only age, gender and culturally specific and appropriate, but are also committed to implementing services which are respectful, person centered and with the client’s best interests governing all decisions.

By supporting our youth, we encourage them to become independent members of their community. We promote safe and healthy living arrangements through community resources and education and aim to strengthen and empower families. We support our clients with caring and understanding staff who have many years of experience working with young people and their families.
