Consultation on the National Youth Policy Framework

Closed 12 Oct 2020

Opened 21 Sep 2020


We know the importance of investing in Australia’s young people, and believe in their power to create positive change.

For us to achieve meaningful change now and into the future, we must involve young people in the decisions that affect them.

To inform the development of the National Youth Policy Framework, we have created a national survey for young people aged 18 and over.

The survey gives young Australians a chance to tell us their views on what is important to them. It will help shape the priorities, policies and programs that affect them.

You can take the survey until 11.59PM AEST Monday 12 October 2020. We will use the results of the survey as we finalise the framework.

We look forward to your input as we work with you to make sure your concerns are at the centre of government decisions.

If you are aged 15 to 17 years, and want to take part in our consultation, contact us
