Our Voice, Our Health- A Photovoice Exhibition

On now at Box Hill Institute Lilydale Lakeside (in the foyer at the Lilydale library). This collection of photos, taken by local young people highlights their experiences in regards to health and well-being, and the influences of housing instability. The exhibition is a powerful snapshot in to some of the lives of youth in the Yarra Valley. Thank you to everyone involved in the project; especially the photographers!

“Emily*, aged 15, came into care following numerous child protection investigations due to her experiencing neglect and abuse. Emily had never had the opportunity to participate in any social activities, almost a prisoner within her own family home.
Emily has challenges establishing friend ships and finds it difficult to trust others”.

Emily’s story is not uncommon. Without local Foster Carers, these adolescents are forced to move to other areas, where they must try to rebuild connections in a new community.

We are currently experiencing an immediate need for carers for adolescents.
