BOOST FOR CASEY’S NATIONAL YOUTH WEEK CELEBRATIONS

The City of Casey’s Rock ‘n’ Skate Festival will be bigger and better than ever before as young people from across Casey come together to celebrate National Youth Week.

The Andrews Labor Government has provided a $2,000 grant to ensure local young people can put on this event during National Youth Week.

The annual live music, BMX, skate and scooter competition will provide young people with an opportunity to showcase their talent and have their voices heard and valued.

The event will also promote positive mental health and provide information, support and referral to young people and families within the community.
