Go Goldfields: Aspiring & Achieving

More than 100 experts across 5 groups, representing the voices of thousands, collaborate through the Go Goldfields initiative.

We bring people and organisations together to deliver lasting and meaningful achievements for our community. We facilitate long-term social change with a focus on creating the best possible environments for 0-25 year-olds by making sure that services and community groups are working towards the same community-driven desired aspirations.

The work is broken into four areas being; Children and Families (through our Children and Families Partnership Group), Youth (through our Youth Alliance), Economic Participation (through our Employment, Education and Training Action Group) and Family Safety (through our Family Violence Action Group). The fifth group is our Collaborative Table, who set the over-arching strategies and advocate for collaborative practice.

The groups identify evidence-based priorities to be addressed each 12 months based on the aspirations related to each area. These priorities are assigned short and medium objectives by our various working groups. The working groups then set linked advocacy initiatives and activities to achieve these objectives.

All of this moves us closer to attaining the original community-driven aspirations that dive our work.

The Central Goldfields Pop-up Youth Hub is now open! Tuesdays and Thursday's, Maryborough Town Hall.

The Pop-up Youth Hub is a partnership initiative supported by a number of key agencies operating across Central Goldfields. The organisations involved in establishing the Hub, which includes Maryborough District Health Service (MDHS), Anglicare Victoria, Youth Support and Advocacy Service (YSAS), and Central Goldfields Shire Council are part of the Go Goldfields Youth Alliance.

The Alliance aims to improve outcomes for young people and families across the Shire through stronger collaboration between the local community and local services, businesses and decision-makers.

Central Goldfields Shire Council is undertaking the lead role in coordinating the integrated services that will be delivered from the Hub. Council will also lead the Alliance in its approach to identifying appropriate funding which will enable the Hub to operate on a more sustained basis after the initial 6-month pilot phase.

It was wonderful to see so many families participating at the Pop-up Playground run by the Central Goldfields Shire Council Goldfields Family Centre last week! Kindergarten (starts next week!) and daycare provides important learning opportunities through play.

Just 15 hours per week at Kindergarten can change the direction of a child's life, by getting them ready for school and ready for a life lived to the fullest. Did you know that some of our local kinder programs even provide a door-to-door pick up and drop off service?

Go Goldfields aspires to ensure that; ‘All children in our community are confident, creative, safe and healthy.’
