Youth Framework

Consultation concluded

In the City of Stirling, 17 per cent of residents are between the ages of 10 and 24. Our young people are growing up in very different circumstances across the City.

In 2016, the City initiated a process to develop our first Youth Framework (Framework). The development of the Framework has been shaped by our learnings from the research we have undertaken, in addition to insights obtained through engagement with City staff, local agencies and young people. The Framework aims to ensure that we support and enable the City’s young people to contribute in meaningful ways to community life and to play a key role in shaping our community’s development in this changing environment.

The Framework has been designed to be a high-level guiding document that will underpin the City’s approach to achieving our vision. It will be accompanied by a two-year implementation plan that provides a detailed breakdown of targets, responsibilities and time frames (2019 - 2021). This implementation plan will be developed in conjunction with the responses collected from the recent Youth Survey. The Framework will be reviewed every four years with implementation plans updated every two years.

The Youth Framework will help the City deliver on the vision outlined in our Strategic Community Plan. It complements our existing Reconciliation Action Plan, which recognises our Aboriginal heritage; our Access and Inclusion Plan and Age-Friendly Community Strategy, which focuses on ensuring residents of all abilities have access to City services and are included in community life; and our Multicultural Framework, which aims to achieve our vision of an inclusive and harmonious community.

What is the Youth Framework?

The Youth Framework aims to ensure that we support and enable young people aged 10–24 in the City of Stirling to contribute in meaningful ways to community life and to play a key role in shaping our community’s development in this changing environment.

The Framework has been designed to be a high-level guiding document that will underpin the City’s approach to achieving our vision.

Feedback on the draft Youth Framework document will be reviewed and may be incorporated into the final copy for Council endorsement.
