What matters to the Young Communities Team is young people having the opportunities to speak up and have a say about what matters to them while also having the opportunities to create lasting positive impact.

Have Your Say
Would you like to hear about different opportunities to have your say about Brimbank Council projects?
Brimbank Young Communities Team work with council and external departments to involve young people’s voice in things that are relevant to them.We got input from young people on the climate emergency action plan, the library redevelopment project, and even what our youth service delivers. If you get in touch we can hold onto your details and invite you when these opportunities arise.
