Seven Up Youth Centre
|24 February 2011
Following the success of the Seven Up Youth Centre trial period between June and October 2010, an application for funding was submitted to the Department of Premier and Cabinet (DPAC) through its Community Capacity Building Grants, by Rural Health Tasmania on behalf of the partners in the project, including Circular Head Council and the Smithton Christian Fellowship.
This submission was successful and as a result, it is anticipated that Seven Up will again open its doors to the young people of Circular Head in Term Two of the 2011 school year.
General Manager Greg Winton said "The funding will enable the employment of a part-time coordinator for the centre who would work closely with Circular Head Council's Youth and Community Officer to deliver positive outcomes for the youth of Circular Head".
This DPAC funding is for the period up to 31st October, 2011.
Further enquiries may be directed to Yvonne Stone, Community Development Officer by Telephoning 6452 4800.
