What will be published?

Articles that we will generally publish include:

  • Items relevant to Brimbank Youth Services, local youth organisations, businesses and individuals. 
  • For businesses, we won’t publish product promotions, but will accept news about expansion, major changes, awards, etc.
  • News from schools, clubs and community groups.
  • Community service announcements.
  • Photos of breaking news, community events or those that promote a positive image of the city, such as the #brimbank, #wearebrimbank and #brimbankyoungpeople pictures on Instagram.

Brimbank Youth Services acknowledges there are reputable media outlets in Brimbank that do publish local news, and we acknowledge the important role they play.

We don’t seek to displace them, but to add to media diversity and provide a platform for many public-interest stories which aren’t always published.

If people disagree with the views expressed in an article, or want to express an opinion, they may do so in the comments section or contact us.

If there’s an error in any of our articles or if you have a complaint, please contact us by telephone (9249 4000), or email bys@brimbank.vic.gov.au
