Young leaders, youth organisations and relevant government agencies are invited to provide their views to help shape the National Youth Policy framework.
Results of the online survey will help shape the priorities, policies and programs which affect youth.
Member for Riverina, Michael McCormack MP said this is particularly important as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a widespread impact. “Many young Australians are dealing with disruptions to their education, sudden unemployment, mental health issues and economic insecurity within the family,” Michael said.
“We are now providing young Australians, particularly those aged 15 to 24, with an opportunity to give direct advice on the development of the framework and ultimately, a meaningful contribution to the policies that affect them.”
The involvement of young voices will be used to create a framework that aims to improve the lives of young Australians in the Central West. The month-long consultation will help the Government identify any gaps or barriers experienced by young people which prevent them from fully participating in Australian society.
