Change Mansfield Youth Centre Restrictions!!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!


Hello youth and others of Mansfield Shire Victoria!

There has recently been an upsetting change to our beloved Youth Centre which includes: no beverages or snacks, times restricted to 3-6pm on weekdays, age restriction to 12-18 years of age and sign in and out books for saftey.

What bothers the community of young people and myself most is the lack of food/beverages, the age restriction, the disapearance of Friday Dinner and the times. 

I am almost eighteen as is my brother (s). One has autism which impairs his learning ability and socializing skills to a point. He went to the ecafe every Friday until it closed (10pm) to socialize and play & hang around with great, friendly people. The Shire is taking away his one solid and safe opportunity to get to know people which is SHAMEFUL! The Shire are taking away opportunities for people like him to socialize, play, work etc and feel safe in an environment like the youth center.

I myself have an anxiety disorder and find it exceptionally hard to talk to people, but in a place like the youth centre I can lay back and feel secure as ever that I will not come under any harm. The Shire are taking away /my/ socializing opportunity and study time there.
