The draft Children and Young People (Safety) Bill 2016 which has been released by the State Government for comment will be at the heart of the child protection reform when it is passed by Parliament this year. It brings in some strong statements of principle and an increased emphasis on participation by children but there are also some omissions and concerns.
MarionLIFE Youth is a youth drop-in space for local 12-17 year olds in the Youth Centre building between 3-5pm on Fridays during school Terms 1 and 2, 2017. It will include a safe ‘hang-out’ space with fun activities, life skills workshops and a healthy light meal. It will also provide the opportunity for young people to access information about other relevant support services depending on their needs. This project is funded through the City of Marion Youth Grants Program.
