Go Goldfields is excited to see that a central enrollment system is now available in the Central Goldfields. This is an advancement that our Children and Families Partnership has been advocating for for many years. Congratulations to all involved, we hope that it brings clarity and ease to the process for our families and early years services and educators. Together we can shift the data and increse enrollments, one step at a time.

This connects to the Go Goldfields aspiration; "All children in our community are confident, creative, safe and healthy."

WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE YOUTH HUB SO FAR? A survey is now open and seeking feedback on the Central Goldfields Youth Hub and share ideas about its future. The survey is relevant whether you have heard of or visited the Youth Hub, or not. It will take about 5-10 minutes to complete and will remain open till Friday 26 June 2020. Head to the survey: www.surveymonkey.com/r/ZMMVQRV

Please share this survey with young people or parents of young people.

Background: The youth hub is a place for young people in Central Goldfields to come for information, services and support as well as to spend time with friends. It is a place where young people can go to have fun, learn new skills and get help during tough times.

Organisations servicing the Central Goldfields Shire are working together to help improve the lives of young people across the Shire, and ensure that young people are valued, respected, and heard. As part of this, the Go Goldfields Youth Alliance saw that there was a need for a place where young people could access information, services, and support as well as engage in fun and recreational activities. In response, this pop-up youth hub was set up in the Maryborough town hall, running between 4 February and 20 March 2020 when it was closed temporarily due to COVID-19 government restrictions. The hub is managed by the Central Goldfields Shire Council.

Let's remember to Be Kind, Be Safe and be patient as we move through it. ... See MoreSee Less

A special edition of the popular What’s On for Children flier has been produced to advise of changes to programs and services accessed by Children and Families during COVID-19 Government Stage 3 restrictions in school Term 2.

The What’s On for Children in Central Goldfields formerly known as the Stuff for kids and families in the Central Goldfields flier is distributed throughout the shire every term providing information about free activities.

The first flier originated from members of the Maryborough Mighty Mothers Group over four years ago and was further developed by the Go Goldfields: Aspiring & Achieving Children and Families Partnership and Central Goldfields Shire Council.

Thanks to all of our collaborators especially Best Start / MDHS - Maryborough District Health Service, Bendigo & District Aboriginal Co-Operative, Anglicare Victoria and the Maryborough Regional Library - Victoria in getting this out.
