YFS turnover grew by 13.2% in the year ended 30 June 2018 – a very positive result given the highly dynamic environment and competitive environment in which we operate.
YFS was successful in obtaining funding for three new programs in 2017-2018 - Scenic Rim Financial Counselling, Assessment and Service Connect and Functional Family Therapy - Child Welfare from the Queensland Government, contributing a total of $602,851 to our income.
These three new programs will continue to contribute approximately $1,800,000 to our income in the next financial year. This is important to the organisation’s sustainability given YFS will no longer be providing disability services for people eligible for the National Disability Insurance Scheme once the scheme’s rollout is completed.
YFS received a generous donation of $100,000 to support our Peer Educator program – R4Respect.
Our Social Enterprise had some significant growth with income increasing by 17.8%, largely driven by the development and delivery of flood monitoring signs for local councils.
YFS continues to be in a very strong financial position with our Asset to Liability Ratio at 4.88 times and a Current Ratio of 2.67 times.
Our Capital Expenditure went towards setting up a new Jimboomba office to expand our geographic footprint and enable more clients to access our services. We also added 10 new vehicles to our fleet to support the three new programs and invested in new ICT infrastructure to position us well to continue to provide innovative, high quality services to our community.
