Blackwood Youth Action is a local charity that supports marginalised young people in the Blackwood Region and surrounds
to "be the best they can be".
Funds raised from the Tour of the Blackwood support the provision of individualised counselling for youth with mental illness
living within the Warren Blackwood region.
Mental illness is the leading cause of death and illness in young people in Australia. In the Warren Blackwood region,
young people with mental health problems have extremely limited access to services to support them. The majority
of our youth with emerging or mild/moderate mental health problems would not have access locally to psychological
support without the support provided by the Rotary Tour of the Blackwood.
On behalf our our youth...our future...thank you for taking part in this ride.
