Youth Reference Group (Click to show below) (Click to hide below)

headspace Bendigo believes youth participation is fundamental to the delivery of quality services for young people.  This is why we have a youth reference group to assist and if you're aged between 12 - 25 we would love for you to be a part of it.

We meet on a Wednesday night at headspace Bendigo, with a very casual and relaxed atmosphere that encourages people to speak as much or as little as they want - we also provide some fun food and have the ability to transport people home.

If you are interested, please call headspace on 54 345 345 or click for brochure.
