The City of Joondalup’s Youth Services team is working on how to re-open facilities and usual programming following the State Government’s announcements to ease COVID-19 restrictions from 18 May.
There are lots of factors that we need to consider before resuming face-to-face services, with priority being community health, staff health and overall viability. Please keep an eye on our facebook page and y-lounge.com.au, or subscribe to our e-newsletter for updates.
As a direct result of the Covid-19 pandemic, Joondalup’s Youth Service spaces are currently closed for public access, however we are busy working behind the scenes to provide support to young people over the telephone and online.
We are also focusing on developing some tutorials for various programs, competitions and exciting online resources and programs to keep young people engaged. Thanks for staying with us and make sure you check back here regularly.
We’d love to hear from you and if you have any queries or concerns please get in touch with us.
