The Hemmant Flexible Learning Centre (HFLC) has been established in consultation with the local community to support young people disengaged from mainstream schooling. The Centre offers a program that focuses on engaging young people with complex needs and encourages participation and active learning in a supported and connected way. Together with the local community and allied agencies we aim to provide a learning environment that promotes confidence, ability, opportunity and optimism for all young people attending. Typically young people attending are high school aged, 13-17 yrs. Staff and young people work cooperatively at Hemmant FLC to develop Personal Learning Plans identifying individual educational needs and setting personal goals.

The four common ground principles utilised by the Youth+ FLCN are:
