Anastasia Svetlichny, BLACK
Anastasia has a strong sense of justice, and wants to see services in the community improved, especially for people with mental health issues and young people in correctional services.
“Each year we spend millions on prison facilities and it does not make our community safer, nor does it reduce crime. We need to invest in early intervention methods to keep young people out of the criminal justice system.”
As a young carer, she knows the challenges of balancing work, study and family responsibilities. Anastasia is a graduate of Flinders University, and has also completed TAFE business qualifications. As a volunteer, she believes that there is a lot that younger people can offer in an ageing community but that the connections and opportunities are not readily available. She is passionate about environmental issues and supports Kelly Vincent and Dignity Party because they are speaking out and increasing fairness in the community.
