Quotes from Minister for Territory Families, Dale Wakefield

“The Territory Labor Government is investing in over 400 activities across the Territory over three weeks for the July school holiday. Keeping our children and young people busy and engaged in educational and fun activities is a great way to build thriving and safer communities.

“The activities that we have on offer across the Territory for the school holidays will also give at-risk young people a safe space to hang out together.

“We are proudly supporting and funding local organisations, community groups, businesses and local government to run youth engagement activities during school holidays.”
