Singleton: Supporting mental health

More than 100 young people will benefit from a partnership between the Rotary Club of Singleton and Singleton Council. Members of the Rotary Club have raised $3,000 for Singleton Youth Venue to run the Love Bites and Rhythm2Recovery programs later this year.

Love Bites is a one-day education program focusing on the development of respectful relationships and violence prevention for young people aged 15 to 17 years, while Rhythm2Recovery delivers therapeutic programs and professional development using fun and engaging rhythmic musical activities to support social and emotional development.

“This is a great demonstration of the community coming together to directly support young people through these programs that already have a proven track record in changing lives,” said Mayor of Singleton, Cr Sue Moore.

“The Youth Venue is a fantastic facility with a unique insight into the issues affecting young people, and I thank the Rotary Club of Singleton for partnering with us to deliver these initiatives that ensure the good work of our youth workers can continue.”
