Old Beach’s yourtown gets a facelift

by Brighton Council
The yourtown Tassie Social Enterprise team

The refurbishment and re­launch of the yourtown chil­dren and families facility in Old Beach was made possible through the hard work of the community.

Long-term unemployed young trainees worked alongside trainers, learning valuable skills throughout the process. Local tradespeo­ple and suppliers contributed materials and labour as well.

Established with help from the Margaret Pemberton Foundation, supplemented by yourtown donors and fundraising, the facility offers an early childhood develop­ment program. It is available to families with children aged 2.5 – 6 years, with pri­ority given to families with a caregiver under 25 years and families who live in the Old Beach area.

“We want to make sure that the young children in Brighton have the best start to life,” says yourtown CEO Tracy Adams.

“This free program has a spe­cial focus on developmental concerns and helping parents early, and we are excited to be able to support local families in this refreshed and welcoming facility.”
