Our young people at the Skate Park

Young People

Narrandera Shire has a strong youth contingent and at Council we aim to provide accessible services, events and information to encourage our young people to not only have a thriving childhood, but to also consider staying on in our Shire after school and retain our leaders of tomorrow. Connecting them with suitable courses through Tafe NSW Narrandera Campus, and giving them a platform to have their ideas heard through the Youth Advisory Council.

If you’re a young person living in or visiting Narrandera and looking for something to do, check out what we have to offer. During the school holidays Narrandera Shire Library hosts an array of events for all ages. Each year in April Council also takes part in Youth Week, a group of events dedicated to our young people.

Youth Services 

Narrandera Youth Space

The Narrandera Shire Youth Space is a dedicated Youth zone. Whether you want a quiet place to study or hang out with your friends or a place to escape in to the world of Virtual Reality, this is the place for you. Connected to the Narrandera Shire Library, you can also access the free Wi-Fi, an array of books and facilities.

Headspace

Headspace centres act as a one-stop-shop for young people who need help with mental health, physical health (including sexual health), alcohol and other drugs or work and study support.

Our 100+ centres are designed not just for young people, but with them, to ensure they are relevant, accessible and highly effective. As a result, no two Headspace centres are the same, with each offering unique services that reflect the needs of its local community.

To access these services locally, please contact the Griffith centre 02 6962 3277 or enquiries@headspacegriffith.org.au

Fusion

Fusion began in the 1960’s as a movement led by young people. We wanted to give space for other young people to see themselves and their future differently. No matter what background, what cultural influences may be holding them back, we see every young person as deserving of a strong future.

Our team of highly qualified and passionate youth workers aim to meet today’s youth where they’re at, and so we are continually developing and evolving our range of programs to stay ahead of the issues impacting our culture. Our goal is to mentor and encourage young people to step beyond what they know of themselves, to discover their full potential and find their purpose in life.

When young people have strong relationships with their peers, parents/carers, other significant adults and strong connections in their schools and communities they have the potential to prosper.

It’s our values of justice, mercy, compassion, respect and industry which are the basis to Fusion’s youth work. We incorporate them into the design, goals, operational practices and the delivery of our programs, where staff, volunteers, students and others in Fusion work together to build skills and establish community connections, places where individual young people can thrive.
