Community Engagement 2023/2023
We are a small team of dedicated Community Engagement workers who work part-time hours.
An important part of our role in the community is to promote headspace services to young people, parents/carers, schools and other key stakeholders. We are keen to collaborate with services and community groups based on the Gold Coast by offering presentations about headspace services, hosting stalls and partnering on activities/events/something cool!
Our priority groups include young men, disengaged young people, First Nations, Culturally & Linguistically Diverse and LGBTIQAP+ young people. Requests for community engagement and participation will be prioritised in relation to those priority groups.
Our Community Engagement team also runs our Youth Advisory Council which is a good group of passionate young people who work with our centre to give guidance and feedback, collaborate on events and campaigns, create social media and help make sure young people's voices are being heard.
