I rise today to pay tribute to young Australians, in particular, young Australians in the seat of Fairfax on the Sunshine Coast. We’ve all been hit by the COVID-19 in many different ways and Youth Unemployment rates on the Sunshine Coast is now 15.9%.
But beyond Government doing it’s bit, beyond young people doing their bit, beyond businesses trying to employ, I want to encourage young people to have a go at starting their own businesses.
SUICIDE AND THE WAY BACK PROGRAMMon, 15 March 2021 12:00 am
The rate of suicide in Australia is over double the national death toll on our roads.
This is of grave concern to us all.
According to the latest ABS data there were 3,318 deaths by intentional self harm in 2019.
This is 3,318 deaths too many and equates to nine deaths every single day.
I recently spoke about this incredibly difficult and sensitive issue in Parliament, making specific mention to Central Queensland, Wide Bay, Sunshine Coast PHN and the launch of ‘The Way Back’ program.

Delivering on Local ProjectsWed, 25 August 2021 12:00 am
While Australia faces no shortage of challenges today, I want to assure the people of the Sunshine Coast that the Federal Government is not taking the eye off the ball when it comes to progressing local projects.
This relates to a range of recent announcements and the completion of significant local infrastructure projects on the Sunshine Coast.
