The Attorney-General of Queensland and Minister for Justice, the Honourable Jarrod Bleijie MP, paid a visit to the Redcliffe Peninsula on Wednesday the 3rd of July to spend some time with Chameleon Housing and the Redcliffe Youth Space to hear about the important work both of these organisations do to support disadvantaged and marginalised young people in the local area.
The Attorney-General was accompanied by Reg Gully, the Member for Murrumba. Reg is a huge supporter of the work the Youth Space and Chameleon do, as both organisations take in a lot of young people from his electorate which includes North Lakes, Mango Hill, Rothwell and parts of Kippa-Ring.
With the recent release of the Queensland Government’s Youth Strategy, and because the Attorney-General’s portfolio covers some of the issues young people encounter, Jarrod Bleijie wanted to hear from services on the ground about some of the issues they face and to learn about many of the programs that are on offer for young people.
The Youth Space’s CEO said “it was great to spend a little over an hour with the Attorney-General and Reg today. We discussed everything from the recently released Carmody Report into Child Protection, to some of the issues local young people currently face.”
The Youth Space thanks the Attorney-General for showing an interest in their work, and they thank Reg for once again coming out to visit and spend some time with the Youth Space’s staff and Management Committee.
