Regional Youth Action Plans

Regional Youth Action Plans are an identified key outcome of the Territory Families Regional Youth Services Framework. They are an opportunity to engage young people and key stakeholders to identify gaps and priorities to improve outcomes for young people through the development of regional solutions.

Regional Youth Action Plans are currently being developed for Darwin, Palmerston, Alice Springs, Nhulunbuy, Katherine and Tennant Creek and will be released over the coming months.

Palmerston Youth Action Plans

The Palmerston Youth Action Plan has been developed in collaboration with young people, key community stakeholders and government partners through the establishment of the Palmerston Youth – Local Action Group.

The Palmerston Youth Action Plan will guide future actions and priorities to be addressed in the Palmerston community and support partnerships and opportunities to work together to support positive changes for young people.

Katherine Youth Action Plans

The Katherine Youth Action Plan was developed through listening to young people and the community and working in partnership with stakeholders to establish goals and priorities for the community.

The Katherine Youth Action Plan acknowledges roles and responsibilities of government agencies, non-government organisations, service providers and community stakeholders in supporting young people to feel valued, involved and empowered to live a positive and healthy life.

If you have participated in the Round Table program and would like to be included in the next alumni report, please contact the Office of Youth Affairs.
