Our role is to help organisations, businesses, schools, community groups, government departments to all work together around agreed goals to achieve better outcomes for young people. We have the ability to work towards meeting the needs of the community as issues arise. We act neutrally and independently and we are able to bring key partners together to achieve significant positive outcomes for the young people of our region.
