Go Goldfields is proud to stand along-side the leaders of this innovative initiative for the Central Goldfields!

YOUTH SERVICES UNITE! An alliance of Central Goldfields youth services has united to deliver a pop-up youth hub in the Shire from December this year.

A community launch will take place next Thursday 24th October from 11 am to midday at the Maryborough Town Hall. Go Goldfields and partners are inviting potential front-line youth service providers, interested community members, and young people to come and find out more about this innovative initiative.

Go Goldfields is leading the project through Council having established a strong partnership of local organisations committed to improving the range and accessibility of services available to young people living in the Shire. Together the partnership has been able to raise funds to run the 6 month pop-up pilot, secure a building and engage consultants to create an operating plan for the hub in consultation with local young people.

The local organisations leading the partnership are Central Goldfields Shire Council, @Youth Support and Advocacy Service (YSAS), Anglicare Victoria, and MDHS - Maryborough District Health Service (MDHS) with many other services aligned.

The pop-up will trial an integrated service model that will be accessed by young people across the Central Goldfields Shire.

The alliance plans that this trial will inform a business case for a permanent youth facility, co-designed with local young people, that combines an integrated service model with a recreational youth space for the Shire. The need for a Youth Hub was identified after considerable consultations with young people, youth service delivery experts, and community members by Go Goldfields and the alliance over the past few years.

Central Goldfields Shire Council is committed to supporting the pop-up and has made the Maryborough Town Hall available for the test period.

The recently launched Keep in Touch (kit) Van will also be on show for the first time in the shire with giant Jenga, music, giveaways and more. This is a youth co-design mental health initiative rolling out across the Loddon Campaspe region this month. This youth-led project focuses on breaking down mental health stigma through bold conversations with the kit crew and information access via the van and their associated App.

A youth-focused Pop-Up Hub Open Week will kick it all off when doors open in December this year.

Walking - step into it anyway you can.

Central Goldfields Shire Council will join VicHealth in its mission to get kids walking, riding and scooting to school as part of the health promotion foundation’s annual Walk to School program - 7th of October to 1st of November.

Every October, Walk to School encourages families to get active on the trip to and from school (even if you drive and park a block away!) to help kids build healthy habits for life.

Thanks to funding from VicHealth, Council is working with local primary schools to provide resources, develop maps for safe walking routes, and look at more ways for kids and families to be active every day!

Central Goldfields Shire Chief Administrator Noel Harvey said VicHealth’s Walk to School program is a free, easy and fun way for kids to get active and build healthy habits for life.

“Central Goldfields Shire Council is delighted to support Walk to School in Maryborough to encourage more kids to be active on the way to and from school,” Noel said.

“Our kids are healthier and happier when they’re active every day, and walking to school is a great way to get their activity in.

“We want to make walking to school easy and attractive for families, and we encourage all residents to walk to school, or park and walk, during the month of October.

“Last year, six local schools participated in this great VicHealth initiative, and we encourage more primary schools to get involved this year to make Walk to School bigger and better.”
