Eurobodalla locals are invited to attend the Growing Stronger forum on Monday June 21 and be part of a community led response to building healthy communities where local young people can be happy, healthy and thrive.
Locals have long held concerns for the wellbeing of Eurobodalla youth, due to risk- taking
behaviours, drug and alcohol use and mental health issues. The bushfires and the pandemic have made things harder than ever for young people in our community.
The forum will kick off the Growing Stronger project which aims to support bushfire affected youth in the Eurobodalla to achieve their potential; in their families, communities and future careers.
Come along to the event and find out how you can be part of this evidence-based response.
“This forum could not have come at a better time for our young people. The bushfires and pandemic have hit our young people hard”. Robert Richmond, Eurobodalla Local Drug Action Team Founder.
