Court Breakfast

Program (CBP)

It's hard trying to focus at the best of times on an empty stomach... 

By providing a nutritious breakfast, the CBP looks to enhance young people's attendance and engagement in court.

Hello Initiative were shocked to discover that
rolling surveys found 49%* of young people didn't eat breakfast before court... And we wanted to address it.

Every week, Hello Initiative drop-off the food to the court

Our volunteer team deliver a range of nutritious food at the start of each week. This can include fresh fruit, juice boxes, muesli bars and banana bread to name a few... And of course a few boxes of Up & Go!

Breakfast is provided to young people

The court welfare volunteers hand out the breakfast items to W.A. young people in the court - as we all know, food is fuel!

When surveyed, 90%* of young people identified that they would use the CBP service again.

This program is modelled on similar food relief programs delivered in schools, and is designed to support young people as well as their families to attend court and engage with the staff and the judicial process to improve long term outcomes

Hello Initiative delivers this program in partnership with the Perth Children’s Court of Western Australia and a team of Court Welfare Volunteers.


"Since the introduction of the CBP young people attending the Court are engaging very positively with the program.

Young people are happier to attend court, the experience is less upsetting for many of those who are given breakfast and they are better engaged and listen to what they are told in court."


- His Honour Judge Hylton Quail

President of the Perth Children’s Court
