Twelve25 Salisbury Youth Enterprise Centre is the heart of delivery of youth services from Council, however staff of the centre retain a citywide role, often running events and programs at other sites across the council area. 

Twelve25's programs aim to work with young people aged 12 to 25 who live, work, study or volunteer within the City of Salisbury. 

The youth centre building is often buzzing with action on weekdays with spaces including the institute hall, training / meeting rooms, the computer suite with 12 PCs, kitchen, a consulting room and serviced office space that is staffed during weekday business hours. PBA-FM 89.7 Community Radio is also co-located at the site. Programs run at all hours of the day and are facilitated not through the centre but by hire groups.

All centre users for Twelve25 programs and casual access programs are able to become members of the centre. This is a free process but requires guardian / parental consent, this is the same membership used by libraries. Use of the computer suite during public access requires a library/ membership card for access.  

Twelve25 develops and offers programs in partnership with numerous education providers, which target young people who have modified learning plans or for whom learning outside a school environment better suits.
