Developed in response to a mental health crisis in the Avalon Community, and spearheaded by all around excellent people Ian Bowsher from Barrenjoey High and Justene Gordon from The Burdekin Association, the Avalon Youth Hub provides a safe space for young people and their carers between the ages of 12-24 to seek help.
