Our vision is that our young people will grow and thrive within a supportive, safe and inclusive community.
As the Shire continues to grow and change, we’re committed to supporting, valuing and empowering our youth. Young people play an important role within our community as our current and future leaders.
The Empowering Youth Plan 2022-2027 sets out key themes, opportunities and actions that have been developed through a broad community engagement process with over 400 locals. The consultation has given us a deeper understanding of the young people of our community.
The plan will guide the Shire to deliver meaningful youth support and services, consider youth perspectives when making decisions and plan for the future. It sets out a framework for the future which outlines the Shire’s role in providing services, support and youth development.
The Youth Advisory Council (YAC) are proud to have been involved in the development of the plan, assisting in the community engagement process, surveying community members, planning events and contributing ideas, suggestions and opinions as representatives of the youth of our community.
