About us

The Townsville Stronger Communities Action Group is a multi-agency group made up of senior representatives from six different government agencies.

The group formed in late 2016 to help break the cycle of youth crime by dealing with the underlying issues that lead some young people to offend.

This can include poor school attendance, mental health concerns, drug and substance misuse, domestic violence and family dysfunction.

These issues don’t fit neatly into the traditional boundaries of one department, which is why we coordinate and connect a range of services across government and non-government agencies for young people and their families.

Our representatives are from:

  • Queensland Police Service
  • Department of Children, Youth Justice and Multicultural Affairs
  • Department of Education
  • Department of Communities, Housing and Digital Economy
  • Department of Seniors, Disability Services and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships
  • Queensland Health.

We are co-located with the Queensland Police Service's Rapid Action and Patrols team in Condon.
