Amber is our schools co-ordinator. She also runs the Love Bites program in high schools all across the Shire. She is all about good coffee, good food and good convos. Give her something to organise, put on some old school r’n’b and she’s in her element. She’s got a knack for being positive, seeing young people for who they really are and encouraging them to use their gifts and talents to make a difference for themselves and the world around them.
Deklan is the Youth Worker at The Family Co. He loves all things music, coffee and skating and is passionate about working with young people. Deklan is full of life, super inclusive and a little bit crazy! Best of all he is ready to support the growth and well-being of any and all young people.
