BackTrack is an organisation that enables young people who have lost their way to reconnect with education and training, become work ready and secure meaningful employment. The BackTrack Works project employs a team of qualified supervisors and trainees who deliver sub-contracting and labour hire services to help their young participants work on real jobs that give them job-ready skills and accreditation.
Steve Bramley from BackTrack Youth Works said: “We are extremely pleased to be able to come to the Nana Glen area which was heavily impacted by the bushfires and help with the rebuilding of assets, particularly fences. Not only will the fences get rebuilt but our young people get invaluable opportunities to work, gain new skills, help a community and aid with helping the whole community feel more positive”.
Council, BlazeAid, BackTrack and the Rotary Club of Coffs Harbour are all involved in helping property owners repair and replace fencing following the Liberation Trail bushfires that swept through Nana Glen in November 2019. The BackTrack team will be working on local properties in and around Nana Glen for the next couple of months.

What an amazing organisation helping our local Nana Glen residents in need!
