Have your Say - COVID-19 Community Consultation
Community consultation about how COVID-19 has impacted you is temporarily on hold (Resuming Monday 26 October)
Youth and Family Services recognises that Coronavirus (COVID-19) has created significant challenges for our community and beyond. We are conducting a research project to learn how COVID-19 has affected young people and families in Greater Dandenong, and to find out the emerging needs and issues.
The consultation will help us to understand how COVID-19 has impacted our community, and ensure that the needs of young people and families are at the ‘front and center’ of our service response now and into the future.
