Batemans Bay Community Centre given a reprieve: New mental health jobs for the region


The Beagle has been advised that the Batemans Bay Community Centre will NOT BE leased for the the new Batemans Bay headspace facility as advised by Council in their communications with the many groups and users of the facility. Instead the new, and very welcomed headspace premises will be located with easy access within the CBD. It is understood that the Council has now been advised.

This is terrific news for the community who feared losing their community centre by council's decision to lease the much used facility.

headspace provides 12-25 year olds mental health, alcohol and other drug, employment, study and physical health services and support, as well as providing information for young people and their families and friends.

MORE GREAT NEWS: headspace Batemans Bay has received funding that will allow them to expand their services into the region that will include a permanent office and also a mobile service with a headspace coach visiting towns and villages in the region.

An OPEN day will be held this FRIDAY, 17th July 2020 from 10am to 4pm at the Community Centre in Batemans Bay providing interested local applicants with information about job opportunities at headspace. Be sure to call in if you are interested in learning more.

Relationships Australia Canberra & Region, a not-for-profit service provider, has been awarded the role of lead agency to oversee the headspace service in Batemans Bay from late 2020.

Relationships Australia Canberra & Region are committed to recruiting staff locally
