Lake Macquarie locals urged to have their say about PCYC Lake Macquarie upgrade

Date posted: 3 December 2018

For over 81 years, PCYC NSW has been at the heart of communities across the state and has reflected the activities and programs needed by each community. In continuing with this important approach, PCYC NSW is calling on the Lake Macquarie community to help shape plans for the upgrade of PCYC Lake Macquarie.

Following a $40 million investment by the NSW Government in June 2018, PCYC Lake Macquarie is one of the 16 facilities scheduled to be newly developed or upgraded. PCYC Lake Macquarie will be upgraded and planning has begun. As part of this, PCYC NSW is seeking advice from Lake Macquarie locals to ensure the facility meets the needs of the community.

“PCYC has been part of the Lake Macquarie community for a number of years and we are excited to be able to deliver a new state-of-the-art Club to meet the changing needs of local young people and families,” said Dominic Teakle, CEO, PCYC NSW.

“We are working to ensure the upgrade will meet the needs of Lake Macquarie to better facilitate our mission of empowering young people. At PCYC NSW, we do not have a one-size-fits-all approach to our service delivery. We pride ourselves on serving the communities in which we work by tailoring our programs and facilities to their unique needs.”

“That is why we need help from those within the Lake Macquarie community to inform the decisions we will be required to make about PCYC Lake Macquarie moving forward.”

Locals can have their say through the PCYC NSW Community Consultation Survey. Feedback provided will help shape plans for the new PCYC Lake Macquarie and will inform the services and activities which will be delivered in the new facility.

New PCYC developments or upgrades will occur in Albury, Bourke, Dubbo, Grafton, Griffith, Hawkesbury, Kempsey, Lake Macquarie, Moree, Parramatta, Redfern, Southern Highlands, Tamworth, Taree, Wagga Wagga and Walgett.

To provide feedback on plans for PCYC Lake Macquarie or another facility visit pcycnsw.org.au before the survey closes on Monday 10 December 2018.
