Hello Initiative partners with frontline justice workers in WA to identify young people who would benefit from more reliable access to mobile technology in order to complete their court requirements and navigate the justice system. We accept referrals from these frontline agencies to provide mobile devices and funding for mobile credit.
Hello Initiative provides a smartphone device to young people who may not have access to mobile technology. Our smartphones are recycled and refurbished devices that have been diverted from landfill. We are proud to collaborate with Total Green Recycling to supply these mobile devices.
Hello Initiative can provide consistent Telstra mobile credit to eligible young people with access to unlimited calls and texts and limited mobile data.
Facilitating ongoing contact with legal support workers such as diversion officers, court officers and lawyers. Provide opportunity for youth justice reporting and maintaining supervision requirements, where necessary.
Connect to broad network of professional supports such as counsellors and social workers. Facilitate ongoing self-referral to crisis supports such as accomodation services. Maintain family and community networks.

"When young people don’t have access to a phone, the only way we can contact them is to drive out to their homes, which is time-consuming. Being able to provide young people with a phone through Hello Initiative has allowed us to spend our time more productively. Hello Initiative has improved client participation in our program by allowing young people to stay connected to their support workers.
Hello Initiative respectfully acknowledges the Noongar people as traditional owners of the land we work on.
We pay respect to their leaders past, present and emerging.
