We’d like to congratulate the Eurobodalla Local Drug Action Team (ELDAT) for successfully gaining funding under the Bushfire Community Recovery & Resilience Fund (BCRRF)– Stream 2 to roll out the Growing Stronger initiative and better support local youth in our region.

This critical funding will make sure the right support reaches bushfire affected youth in the Eurobodalla to achieve their potential; in their families, communities and future careers.

The Eurobodalla community has consistently demonstrated concern for their young people’s wellbeing with a range of organisations banding together over the last 2 years to host community forums about young people’s risk-taking behaviours including drug and alcohol use and mental health concerns.

This funding could not have come at a better time for our young people. It’s been an extremely difficult year for many and we’re extremely pleased to have been given this opportunity to invest in our community and make a positive impact.

The collaboration and partnerships already in place to deliver Growing Stronger is extensive. This initiative will be delivered by ELDAT with 29 members across 17 organisations.

Campbell Page is pleased to be a member of and to be facilitating this partnership of committed organisations on a project that will make a real difference for young people. We’re excited to continue to work together in an effort to strengthen our community and create opportunities for our young people.
