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.

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