New headspace centres announced
The locations of ten new headspace centres have been announced by the Federal Government and headspace.
The new centres are part of the $78 million funding package for headspace announced in the May Federal Budget. The first raft of those centres will be located in areas of high need. These are:
New South Wales: Parramatta (Sydney), Shoalhaven
Victoria: Bendigo, Collingwood (Melbourne)
South Australia: Noarlunga
Queensland: Inala (Brisbane South), Nundah (Brisbane North), Cairns
Western Australia: Perth
These centres will be operational within the next 12 months and will bring the total number of headspace centres to 40.
headspace CEO Chris Tanti said the new centres will extend the organisation’s important early intervention work with young people into new regions that desperately need support.
“Early, effective intervention, targeting young people aged 12 to 25 years, is a national priority and headspace is helping to make this happen through our centres,” Mr Tanti said.
