$30,000 helping hand for youth

IT WAS a massive donation that will provide a world of difference.

Enterprise and Training Company (ETC) has extended a helping hand to local youth through its financial support of headspace Mid North Coast.

Yesterday a donation of $30,000 was announced.

The money will allow headspace to employ a research and development officer, providing a welcome boost to the small but dedicated team.

Centre manager Jesse Taylor said the newly created role would enable them to develop services.

“Thanks to this generous donation we will be able to help more young people at risk by getting a better understanding of the issues they face,” Mr Taylor said.

“The research and development officer will be responsible for supporting projects that identify triggers for young people suffering from poor mental health, and this will help shape the direction of our early intervention services.”

The officer will also investigate funding opportunities and develop fundraising initiatives.
