Residents encouraged to have their say on youth strategy

The community is invited to comment on a new youth strategy to set the vision for supporting young people in the Toowoomba Region.

Toowoomba Regional Council’s Regional Youth Advisory Committee chair and Community Development and Facilities portfolio leader Cr Geoff McDonald said Council’s Draft Youth Strategy 2019-2021 would provide a blueprint for recognising, engaging and supporting young people aged 12 to 24 across the Toowoomba Region.

“With more than 27,000 young people living in our region, it’s important that young people are involved in the development of their communities and have opportunities to shape the topics and issues that matter most to them,” Cr McDonald said.

“The strategy, which was guided by the input of more than 700 young people, service providers, youth support workers, educators, emergency services personnel and Councillors, includes six focus areas for Council to implement in collaboration with partner organisations and the broader community over the next three years.
