“Join us for the launch of our report!
On Thursday December 8th the City of Marion’s Youth Collective Committee will be launching our Safe Space Project report. This report is written by young people for decision makers in the City of Marion and beyond.
The Safe Space Project heard from young people in the City of Marion about mental health and wellbeing, and what helps them to feel safe. This project was led by the City of Marion Youth Collective Committee and written by Anita Chaplain in partnership with the Commissioner for Children and Young People SA.
The Safe Space Project hopes to provide insight into how keyed in and knowledgeable young people are about things that affect them, and that they have the solutions. The report showcases youth led ideas and hopes to demonstrate to council needs that must be addressed to support youth mental health and wellbeing in the City of Marion. We hope that this report informs programs and initiatives to improve wellbeing outcomes for young people in the City of Marion and beyond.
Join us at Glandore Neighbourhood Centre for our official launch! Hear from the young people who wrote the report and care about it’s findings.
There will be a light morning tea and barista quality coffee provided thanks to Glandore Neighbourhood Centre.”
