Visiting the Centre

Adelaide Youth Training Centre (AYTC) residents are entitled to at least two personal visits each week from family and friends. Immediate family members will always have first priority. Immediate family can visit AYTC residents during the week, and other family and friends can visit on the weekend.

In addition to personal visits, AYTC residents can have professional and support visits from people such as solicitors or lawyers, counsellors, religious advisors, Aboriginal Elders, case managers and independent advocates.

The visitor meeting place at the AYTC is the Community Centre. There is also a playground area for family visits and a separate family room can be arranged.

AYTC residents need to let staff know who they want to visit them and their contact details, as approvals need to take place before visitors can come to the AYTC.

Book a visit with a resident

Personal visitors need to make a booking to see an AYTC resident - phone 8169 1444 between 9.00 am and 12.00 noon and between 1.00 pm and 2.30 pm Monday to Friday. Bookings need to be made a minimum of 24 hours in advance of the time you want to visit. Bookings cannot be made on weekends.

Remember, all visitors must be approved before they can visit the AYTC.

The earlier a booking is made, the higher the possibility of getting the preferred meeting time. The visitor must contact the AYTC to book a visit by phone themselves. No bookings can be made on behalf of another person.
