Canterbury-Bankstown is on its way to becoming
a child-friendly City.
Mayor Khal Asfour said Council has completed the first step, in meeting the UN Convention’s Rights of a Child requirements, by conducting a city-wide survey.
“The saying ‘It takes a whole village to raise a child’ could not be any more true,” he said.
“Every child has the right to grow up in a community where they feel safe and secure; have access to quality services; can play, learn and grow; and where their voice is heard.
“While official recognition would be welcome, we will always strive to have an innovative and liveable place for all, regardless of any acknowledgement, and being child-friendly is a significant part of that commitment.
“That’s why we have spent the past 12 months speaking with residents and developing our
first Child-Friendly CBCity Action Plan.”
Some of the key actions include:
“I encourage everybody to have a look at the plan and give their
feedback by Thursday 21 November,” Mayor Asfour said.
“That feedback will then be assessed and the plan finalised for Council approval next year.”
