New Deception Bay Child, Youth & Family Centre facilities enhance client support
The Deception Bay Child, Youth and Family Centre today officially opened new extensions to the Centre including a new counselling building, outdoor meeting space and gardens.
“The addition of the new counselling building and other facilities will enhance how we engage with clients and will assist with delivering an improved client experience,” said yourtown CEO Tracy Adams.
“The extensions will enable our dedicated staff to provide counselling, therapy and support to children, young people and families in a welcoming, engaging and beautiful purpose-built facility.
“What’s especially encouraging about the new building and gardens is the projects were coordinated by our Social Enterprise programs which provided young people with valuable experience and job-ready skills while contributing to this community project.
“It’s through involving Social Enterprise clients in community works like this that we help equip young people with the necessary skills and experience to develop solid future job and career pathways.”
Federal Member for Petrie Luke Howarth attended the official opening event and noted the tremendous work yourtown performs across the local community and the federal government funding contribution to the Centre’s new facilities.
“I am pleased the Federal Government has been able to contribute over $15,000 toward the new yourtown activity space. yourtown does a great job with young people and families in our community and I support the work they do 100%,” said Federal Member for Petrie Luke Howarth MP.
“I would also like to thank the Moreton Bay Regional Council for its financial support and assistance with the car park upgrade,” said Ms Adams.
