"Go Goldfields Partnership has refined its approach to put all of its effort into early childhood through the Children and Families Partnership. The Partnership will concentrate on ensuring that all children aged 0-5 and their families can access the friendship groups, networks, services and supports they need to be happy, healthy and hungry for learning achieving our aspiration of; ‘All children are confident, creative, safe and healthy’.

The move acknowledges that effort and investment during our children’s early years repay themselves many times over – in better lives and fairer, more prosperous futures."

A great partnership.A big thank you to Zonta Bendigo for a generous donation of $4000 to CNV, which will help us provide practical support to women and children who are victim/survivors of family and domestic violence during COVID-19.

Zonta Bendigo members were concerned about the increased risk and further isolation of women during the global coronavirus pandemic.

The funds have allowed us to purchase vouchers for women and children to buy practical items such as groceries, clothing and petrol.

The vouchers are also being used to help make this time less difficult – for example, toys and games for children, special food items to support positive family times and other items that ease the challenges of family violence and isolation.

Pictured are CNV client services general manager Yvette Jaczina with Ann Horrocks of Zonta, in the Bendigo Conservatory Gardens Zonta rose garden.

Thank you, Zonta Bendigo 🌷

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.
