  • Council to consider endorsing Youth Strategy

    over 2 years ago
    Mp900439433

    Wingecarribee Shire Council has developed a Youth Strategy to help plan better outcomes for young people living in the community.

    In September 2015 we conducted a survey. Once we analysed the responses a Youth Forum was held to explore themes and topics which came directly from the survey.

    A draft Youth Strategy was developed and publicly exhibited from 1/11/16 to 7/12/2016 with submissions identifying where improvements could be made.

    Council will consider a report which summarises community feedback and seeks final endorsement of the Youth Strategy on 14 December 2016.
