At the June meeting it was decided that the October meeting would include a training/awareness session, delivered by NSW Police, to provide licensees, managers and staff with the skills to identify key triggers and behaviours, implement plans and other resources to wherever possible, prevent the incidence of sexual assault. Please don't miss the October meeting and bring your managers to utilise the session as a 'train the trainer' style session.

After attending our 'cheque presentation' at PCYC with Hon Paul Toole and accord and PCYC representatives, Member for North Shore, Felicity Wilson MP expressed interest in the activities of the accord and will be attending the 21 Feb 2018 meeting to meet the members. 

The Hon. Paul Toole, Minister for Liquor and Gaming, showed his support for the significant donation made by the Harbourside Liquor Accord towards the work of the PCYC North Sydney in assisting troubled youth on Sydney’s lower north shore by attending the cheque presentation with accord President Peter Calligeros and Treasurer Luke Simmons and PCYC Youth Case Manager, Snr Cons Jodie Young.

The $3000 donation, initiated by accord members at their recent meeting is in line with the accord’s approach to targeting youth-based initiatives in their local area.

Accord President, Peter Calligeros, said the accord was especially impressed with the strategic and targeted nature of the PCYC programs, which were in line with the accord’s preventative approach and thinking. The funds will be specifically channelled to two key strategies:

  • Case Management – One on One case management of troubled youth through Police NSW Youth Command who work at the club.
  • Fresh Start – A Bootcamp style program targeting truancy within the lower north shore. The aim of the program is to teach youth the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, through fitness, nutrition and hygiene. This allows them to start the day with the right frame of mind for their schooling.  

Felicity Wilson MP, Member for North Shore and other accord members were also present at the occasion.
