Special guests James Griffin MP, Member for Manly and Mayor Michael Regan, Northern Beaches Council officially opened the Taldumande Youth Services Northern Beaches Office in Manly on Tuesday 21 May with CEO, Lisa Graham.
Taldumande considers the Northern Beaches to be one of the most vulnerable areas for young people. Taldumande’s CEO, Lisa Graham said, ‘Seventy-five per cent of clients from the Family Preservation and Restoration program are from the Northern Beaches area. The program is the only one of its kind in NSW and is extremely successful. Last year we preserved and restored over 83 per cent of families with the other young people remaining in our care.’
Taldumande is a very responsive and fluid organisation and the increasing needs of the Northern Beaches young people has seen Taldumande design very targeted programs.
