CEO MESSAGE

Its been an extremely busy time for YFCC. As you can see from our newsletter, we have been heavily involved in National Youth Week activities, with the highly successful Festive-Alley and Reclaim the Lane events. We also launched this year’s H.E.L.P. film festival –this year’s theme being “bullying”.

We are excited to announce that YFCC, working together with the Circular Head Aboriginal Corporation, has been commissioned by Primary Health Tasmania to provide alcohol and drug services focussed on early intervention, treatment and prevention relapse. These services, based in Smithton, Wynyard and King Island, will provide additional support to our Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drug team, and will also provide opportunities to strengthen our partnerships in these regions, ensuring people who are experiencing negative effects from the use of alcohol and other drugs have access to appropriate and timely supports. 

Thank you for taking the time to read the newsletter. If you would like to contribute in our next edition, please contact us on reception@yfcc.com.au

Cheers

Ros Atkinson

YFCC NEW EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT

Hi Everyone, I'm DJ Stubbs. I am very happy to be writing a small insert for our newsletter from my new desk as YFCC Executive Assistant. From what I understand, I have big shoes to fill, and I will do my very best to tick all the boxes. I am fortunate to have many years’ experience in Executive roles, and I am looking forward to the challenges this role brings and will bring. My role revolves around providing support to the Management Team, quality improvement, recruitment, evaluations, data collection and reporting, just to name a few (I’m sure there are many more). I have an open door policy and I happily receive all help offered (no matter how hard it is to hear).

Everyone I have met so far is awesome, which makes me think YFCC is an excellent place to be involved with no matter who you are.

 We welcome DJ to YFCC.
