Child Friendly Cities

We’ve developed the Child-Friendly City Action Plan to guide our journey towards becoming a child-friendly City. The Child-Friendly City Initiative (CFCI) is a United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) global initiative to create places in which the voices, needs, priorities and rights of children, are an integral part of public policies, programs and decisions.

Download the adopted Action Plan to view the actions in detail.

For more information, or if you have any specific questions, contact Council's Manager Children's Services on 9789 9429.
