Dubbo’s Brooke Williams has been selected to represent the region’s youth on the NSW Government’s Regional Youth Taskforce in 2022.
Member for the Dubbo electorate Dugald Saunders said the 23-year-old will be a wonderful advocate for youth in the Orana region.
“Brooke’s already made a significant contribution to the Dubbo community through her work as a transitional property manager with Orana Support Service, and a sexual assault on-call counsellor at Dubbo Hospital,” Mr Saunders said.
“On top of her three jobs, Brooke’s also a talented sportswoman, but as they say, if you want a job done, give it to a busy person!
“I’ve got no doubt she’ll make a great contribution to the Taskforce.”
Miss Williams said representing the region’s youth will be “at the top of my priority list”.
She wouldn’t be drawn on any particular issues she wants to address, but admitted “I’ve definitely got some ideas!”
“I enjoy helping people and I’ve always been very passionate about helping youth and making a change,” she said.
The NSW Regional Youth Taskforce program was established in 2020 to provide a platform for young people across regional NSW to advocate for their communities.
Through quarterly meetings, the Taskforce allows young people to inform government on important youth issues across the regions and offers a unique opportunity to work together to improve outcomes and deliver better services for regional NSW.
