Our Name

Our name carries a deep significance that embodies our core principles and origins. ‘Lookout’ signifies our unwavering commitment to young people; we are here to watch over, protect and provide a safe haven much like the vigilant lifeguards at a beach. We emphasise the importance of looking out for one another, fostering a sense of community and support within our organisation. Just as the view from a lookout offers a panoramic perspective, we encourage our team to keep things in perspective and approach our work holistically.

The ’07’ in our name is a nod to our humble beginnings in Queensland, with ’07’ the area code for our state and our first centre located at 7 Premier Circuit. Seven is not just a number for us; as it represents the seven values that underpin our work, guiding us in every endeavour. Lastly, “07” holds a deeply personal connection as it was the player number of Leon’s beloved brother, Dean, who tragically lost his life to suicide. In his memory, we are dedicated to making a difference in the lives of young people, ensuring they never feel alone in their struggles and always have a supportive “Lookout” to turn to.
