Two of the City of Casey’s Youth Information Centres reopened on Wednesday 17 November.

The centres at High Street in Cranbourne and Stuart Avenue in Hampton Park will be operating from 1.30pm – 5.15pm from Monday to Friday until Tuesday 21 December.

City of Casey Manager for Child, Youth and Family Virginia Lloyd is excited to reopen the facilities which had been closed due to the pandemic.

“The City of Casey is thrilled to have recently reopened its Youth Information Centres, in line with the latest advice from the Chief Health Officer regarding COVID-19,” Lloyd said.

“Our centres provide a safe and welcoming space for young people to visit during the day and after school, with exciting activities on offer, as well as a range of programs for people to participate in.

“We would encourage anyone aged 10-25 years to visit one of our centres for a chance to meet new people and make friends, with our youth centres offering practical support for young people, including advice on career pathways and opportunities following high-school.”

The Narre Warren Youth Information Centre on Webb Street is offering youth counselling and support services by appointment only at this stage.

As per the Victorian Government regulations, proof of vaccination or a valid medical exemption is required for anybody aged 16 and above who would like to attend the Youth Information Centres.
