What is the Oxygen youth space?
If you're looking for somewhere where you can be yourself, hang out with others, and try some new activities then it sounds like you would have fun at the Oxygen Youth space.
The Oxygen youth space is located at 4/8 Gaffney St, Coburg VIC 3058 (next to the Coburg Lake), and is a fun, safe, inclusive, and free space designed to be used by young people aged from 12 to 24.
You can find Oxygen youth space next to the Coburg lake at 4/8 Gaffney St, Coburg VIC 3058. If you are using public transport we are less than 100m from tram stop 37 at Gaffney Street/Sydney Road, and 300m from Batman train station on the Upfield Line.
Our space is set up to be accessible for everyone, and we are happy to answer any questions or provide further information on the space. You can contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 1800 699 688.
With the current COVID-19 crisis we will be monitoring the latest Public Health advice, opening only when it is safe to do so, following all COVID-19 density and safety restrictions, and supervising the safe and careful use of all our equipment at the youth space to prevent any risk of contamination.
Keeping our community safe continues to be our priority, so everyone will be required to sanitise their hands and register their name and contact details when they arrive. This will be used for contact tracing if needed. Wearing a face mask inside is subject to current COVID-19 Safety Guidlines. Always check the current guidelines with the Department of Health and Human Services, and carry a mask with you at all times.
