Adviser tackles Bass Strait for homeless youth

The managing director of Consultum-aligned practice Davlin Wealth Management is set to kayak across the Bass Strait in an effort to raise $40,000 for the Salvation Army's youth program.

Davlin Wealth Management's David Linco, along with friends Mark Hemple and Rodrigo Matamala, will embark on the three-week journey from Victoria to Tasmania to raise funds for the Salvos' Oasis Youth Support Program.

"There has been a sharp rise in youth homelessness in Australia which is why Oasis is needed now more than ever," Mr Linco said.

"Oasis has a proven track record in helping young people realise their potential to grow and become valuable members of the community.

"There is no better way to get a homeless kid off the street than through education and holistic care," he said.

The Oasis program has been helping disadvantaged and marginalised young people in Sydney's inner city since 1992.

Oasis provides 24-hour support to homeless young people through crisis and transitional accommodation, case management and vocational programs.


The service also provides young people with help in developing living skills, counselling and outreach services.
