Youth Centre & Services

The Shire of Derby/West Kimberley has an ongoing commitment to working with young people, their families, government and community agencies to foster youth friendly communities that promote the health and wellbeing of young people.

To this end, the Shire considers itself to be both a provider and facilitator of youth services in Derby and Fitzroy Crossing.

Its primary services are provided through the Derby Youth Centre, the Fitzroy Crossing Visitor Centre along with a number of recreational facilities such as basketball courts, swimming pools and the skate park which are also utilised by youth in the areas.

The Youth Services Coordinator (based in Fitzroy Crossing) and the Team Leader - Youth Services (Derby) are both involved in collaborative work with stakeholders and partners.
