Forum highlights lack of events for young people

The Peninsula lacks free events and activities, venues for young people, and affordable and effective public transport, according to a forum of young people held last week.

The forum was attended by people aged 12 to 24, mainly from Umina and Woy Woy, said facilitator Ms Beck Johnston.

She said the "most highlighted topics" included the lack of free and accessible events and activities for young people on the Peninsula.

The young people said safe and affordable transport was lacking "where the bus and train timetables align to avoid waiting at stations and bus stops for extensive periods of time, especially at night".

The forum also suggested "use of pre-existing infrastructure and venues for businesses and organisations to hold events and/or engage with young people to create safe and inclusive spaces".

The theme of the forum was "What kind of Community do young people want to live in?", said Ms Johnston, the Peninsula strategy worker for Regional Youth Support Services.

She said a second event would be developed to present the findings "to the community members and leaders who have been recommended to us at the forum by the young people".
