Children and Young People's Plan 2014-2018


The Children and Young People’s Plan 2014-18 provides a holistic approach to planning for children and young people, including their families. This is the first time the needs and aspirations of children and young people (from birth to 25 years) have been integrated into one plan.

The plan acknowledges the common needs of children and young people, while focusing on the specific issues particular to each life stage. It is informed by research and has been developed in consultation with children and young people and their families, as well as service providers and the wider community. 

The plan sets out Council’s commitments in relation to the children and young people who live, study, work and play in Hobsons Bay.
