'What's Important to YOUth?' discussion paper now available

09 October 2015

The What’s Important to YOUth? discussion paper is now available for young people, their parents, families and carers, as well as community sector organisations, local councils and the private and philanthropic sectors to comment on.

You are invited to get involved and have your say about issues that are important to you in relation to the way young people are supported in the community.

You can provide your thoughts on the discussion paper by visiting consult.youthcentral.vic.gov.au.

The discussions and ideas put forward via the discussion paper will help inform the Victorian Government’s new youth policy.

A main priority of the new policy’s development is getting feedback from a wide and diverse range of people to ensure that the services the Victorian Government provides are relevant.

The new youth policy will provide a coordinated approach to the way the Victorian Government supports young people.

Once developed the new youth policy will:

  • guide the development of government policies and programs and guide the way government engages with young people
  • identify new government actions to improve outcomes for young people
  • increase the focus on preventing problems and addressing them early
  • support seamless pathways and transitions between school, training and work that supports young people to succeed at school, get a job and be connected to the community.

Anyone can join the conversation by visiting consult.youthcentral.vic.gov.au to participate on an interactive online platform where they can let the government know their thoughts.
