Consultation has concluded

Consultation is closed and the Youth Policy has been endorsed by Council at their March 2019 meeting.

The Youth Policy was officially launched at the Taminmin Community Library Open Day on Saturday 4 May 2019.


Background

In April 2018, Council held a Youth Forum at Taminmin College, where 70 year nine students spoke about their futures and their ideas. This was the first step in involving young people in voicing their vision for the future of Litchfield.

With 19% of the Litchfield population aged between 10-24, Council recognises the importance of working with young people and has resolved to develop a Youth Policy.

The Policy will be based on feedback from the 2018 Youth Forum, and further consultation with young people and relevant stakeholders.

A discussion paper was developed to kick start Council's consultation process and to gather valuable information as input in developing the draft Youth Policy.
