 Draft Youth Development Strategy thumb


Young people are essential to the Council’s vision of a progressive City which is prosperous, sustainable and socially cohesive, with a strong community spirit.

The draft Youth Development Strategy outlines how the Council will incorporate good outcomes for young people, aged 10 – 18 years, across everything we do.

Key areas of focus

The objectives of the Youth Development Strategy focus on four key areas:

  1. Physical Activity - ensuring there are places, spaces and opportunities for young people to engage in physical activity and sport
  2. Social Inclusion - ensuring marginalised young people have opportunities to participate in the community
  3. Arts and Culture - providing opportunities for young people to showcase their work
  4. Engagement - through volunteering, work experience and development of skills.

Strategic objectives

The Youth Development Strategy outlines four Council Objectives for youth development:

  • Objective 1: young people are well connected, included and welcome in the life of the community
  • Objective 2: young people are active and healthy
  • Objective 3: young people have resilient futures
  • Objective 4: young people are visible and heard.
