My constituency question is for the Minister for Youth. Minister, what is the Andrews Labor government doing to help and support young people in my district of Ringwood?

The Ringwood Youth Council has been meeting throughout this year to discuss the issues close to their heart. At the last session I was delighted to hear and learn from Youth Council Members Renee, Kate and Beau that they and their peers did not wait a second to get vaccinated. Members also highlighted the challenges that young working people, particularly in hospitality, are facing as we move into a more open situation.

The Andrews Labor government understands and recognises the barriers young people such as Renee, Kate and Beau are facing due to the disproportionate impact of this pandemic, and we are here to make sure they get the support they need. I look forward to the minister’s response.
