Council values the importance of young people and the significant contribution that they make to our community.

Young people are vibrant, passionate, innovative and enthusiastic about the communities in which they live. It is the responsibility of the community to support young people and provide them with every opportunity to succeed. Young people are not just our future they are also important in the present.

Youth Services provides opportunities for young people to develop skills in leadership, program planning and project management. Young peoples’ involvement ranges from giving feedback to direct participation in the development and delivery of service programs and projects that aim to create health and social benefits for their peers. It also offers various social and recreational activities and events for young people that are provided within safe and secure environments.
