HINDMARSH SHIRE YOUTH COUNCIL

The Hindmarsh Shire Youth Council provides an opportunity for young people to participate in making their community a better place to live. Youth Councillors meet to discuss issues that are important to youth within Hindmarsh Shire and also facilitate the staging of events and activities for young people throughout the Shire.

The Youth Council is driven by young people to benefit young people. With support from Hindmarsh Shire Council and its staff, the Youth Council are able to deliver events such as pool parties, live music, movie nights and other activities. The Youth Council may also tackle important social issues and develop initiatives to raise awareness of issues such as mental health, climate change and gender diversity and equality. Youth Councillors have the opportunity to advise Hindmarsh Shire Council on what is important to the youth in each of our communities.

Youth Council provides its membership with many learning opportunities and helps to develop leadership, public speaking and project management skills whilst also building their confidence and resilience.

COVID-19 COMMUNITY UPDATE

ACCESSING COUNCIL FACILITIES - VACCINATION REQUIREMENTS

In line with Victorian Government requirements, as of 6pm Friday 29 October 2021, community members will need to show proof of double vaccination to access Councils community facilities including swimming pools, Nhill Memorial Community Centre, community halls and Hindmarsh Shire Libraries in Dimboola, Jeparit, Nhill and Rainbow. You can do this via the Services Victoria app or with a printed Vaccination Certificate and photo ID.
 
Children under 16, or those with an approved medical exemption, will still be able to access services.
To assist our community who are unable to access library services, in person, click and collect services are available along with e-books, e-audiobooks and e-magazines. Telephone your local Hindmarsh Shire Libraries branch to organise click and collect.
 
At this stage, Council’s Customer Service Centre in Nhill does not require customers to be double vaccinated. Community members needing access to customer services in person, can attend the Nhill Customer Service Centre at 92 Nelson Street, Nhill. Online services are available on our website or telephone 03 5391 4444 for assistance over the telephone.
