Funding Announced for Youth Hub - Rosebud

Posted by antonellaceli on April 16, 2021 at 2:05 AM

A very welcome Growing Suburbs funding announcement of $4.3M for the integrated Youth Hub in Rosebud

 

When people and organisations come together for a common vision and keep at it over the many years, great projects are realised for our community.

 

“This integrated youth hub sets a precedent for the delivery of mental health & wellbeing services, programs and activities to our local young people here on the Peninsula so they don’t have to travel long distances to Frankston or Dandenong.

 

We acknowledge the tremendous work put in by the Shire Youth Team and the consortium of organisations that have worked over the many years to make this vision a reality”

 

“As Seawinds councillors we are delighted that the Hub will be built in Rosebud and will provide much needed support to our young people.”
