2003 Week 1 Hansard (20 February) . . Page.. 323c..
MS GALLAGHER (continuing):
The contract for Woden Youth Centre still includes the requirement of a total of 18 hours of service delivery in the inner south. We therefore need to correct any misconception that services to young people have been reduced in this part of Canberra. Regarding the changes in 2002-03, the contract was renegotiated with Woden Community Service for funding to be provided for playgroups, families and younger children in the Narrabundah facility.
As I indicated yesterday, I am more than happy to discuss the broader issue of afterhours youth services across Canberra with the ministers youth council. I will be meeting with members of the council next week and would ask that this issue be placed on the agenda for discussion.
