Children and Youth

The Ipswich City Council Youth Policy is Council's way of promoting to others the value of young people and what needs to happen to make sure that Ipswich is a great place for young people to live in and visit. The policy has six main areas to it. These are:

  • Advocacy - knowing what current issues are facing young people and finding ways to address them.
  • Participation - providing opportunities to get young people involved in the community and in what Council does as well as including young people in decision making that relates to them.
  • Partnerships - working with youth services and other levels of Government to respond to youth issues and create new opportunities for young people.
  • Positive Promotion - promoting the positive ways young people contribute to Ipswich.
  • Resourcing - providing information to youth services about the local community and opportunities for obtaining additional resources which will mean better services for young people.
  • Employment & Training Opportunities - continuing Council's commitment to employment initiatives and volunteer opportunities for young people.
