Youth (12 – 25 years)

Welcome to the Shire of Gingin’s youth webspace. This information is for you if you are aged between 12 - 25 and live across the diverse regional and coastal areas that make up the Shire. Here you will find information on support services available to you, things to do, awards and volunteer opportunities.

We would love to hear from you if you have ideas for events or things you would like to see in the Shire. Fill in the “I have a suggestion” form below.

Youth Support Services

Life can be tough, and the pressures of school, work, friends and family can get overwhelming at times. However, you don’t have to work through things on your own. There are lots of free services available to help you out when things are hard, when you just need someone to speak to or some more information and support to get you through.
