Geoff Wake (Employment and Training Coordinator) and James Irwin (Youth Instructor) told members of developments after our support of funds for Whitelion in Novenber 2012.
Whitelion’s mission is focused on connecting young people aged 10 to 24 with the community. It provides them with practical and effective support that enables them to make positive choices.
These young people have seldom had positive influences in their lives and are often victims of abuse and neglect. Many come from backgrounds that are characterized by multi-generational disadvantage, unemployment, substance abuse and offending behaviour. They require consistent, practical and intensive support to break the cycle of disadvantage to reach their full potential.
Members appreciated Geoff and James' update.
