Residents are encouraged to have their say on the City of Canterbury Bankstown’s draft Youth Action Plan 2019-23.

Mayor Khal Asfour said the draft plan, which is a first for Canterbury-Bankstown, had been developed in consultation with local young people, youth organisations, reference groups, State Government agencies, and the wider community.

“In Canterbury-Bankstown, there is around 65,000 young people aged 12 to 24, which makes up about 17 per cent of our City’s population,” he said.

“Our youth are culturally diverse, open-minded, supportive of each other, and have a strong focus on what unites and connects them.

“The draft plan captures this and outlines the key actions we need to take in order to support our young people.

“The plan also emphasises the need for us to work with young people, along with other groups, to achieve the best outcomes for them.”

Some key actions within the plan, include:

  • Developing initiatives aimed at making public places more comfortable and welcoming
    for all girls and women;
  • Developing programs focusing on increasing young people’s understanding of mental
    health and wellbeing, including among parents and culturally and linguistically diverse
    communities;
  • Developing ‘Life After School’ workshops, which focus on up-skilling young people; and
  • Developing a youth-led community project that communicates the challenges and benefits of intergenerational relationships, and family cultural expectations.

“The draft Youth Action Plan is underpinned by a key vision within our Community Strategic Plan, CBCity 2028, which is to help build the resilience of young people, and improve their connection to the wider community and Council,” Mayor Asfour said.

“They are our City’s future.”

The plan will be on exhibition until 28 October. For more information, and to have your say, visit cb.city/haveyoursay
