Life Membership awarded to Leanne Bright

For over 10 years, Leanne Bright has been involved with Blue Light. As a Victoria Police Youth Resource Officer at the Yarra Blue Light branch, she was involved with many programs and initiatives that assisted the local CALD communities in and around the City of Yarra.

This experience led to contributing more projects including 2’s Company, Walk Beside Me, BLAST Camps, Respect the Badge, Blue EDGE and many others. From researching and writing grants, to liaising with stakeholders and working on the ground, nothing was ever too hard for Leanne.

In 2014 Leanne took on the role of Blue Light President and from October 2014 to December 2019 she was Vice President providing support to Debra Robertson. During her time on the board Leanne made a significant contribution to the management and day-to-day running of the Blue Light Victorian Youth Camp including times of change management, staffing issues, COVID and finally the closure.

Leanne was also instrumental in organising and running the successful Blue Light Youth Conferences – a youth sector development opportunity and a chance to showcase and involve the community in Blue Light’s work.

Her passion for making a difference in young people’s lives is unwavering which shines through with her can-do attitude, making her a worthy Life Member for any organisation.

Thank you and congratulations, Leanne!
