The NSW Strategic Plan for Children and Young People 2022-2024 was launched this week by the Office of the Advocate for Children and Young People (ACYP).
Fams CEO Susan Watson was in attendance, along with Zoë Robinson, Advocate for Children and Young People (above).
The Strategic Plan for Children and Young People 2022-2024 is the second whole-of-government plan for all children and young people in NSW.
Launched on 1 April, and informed by the voices of more than 41,000 children and young people in NSW, this Plan brings together initiatives undertaken across government under six core commitment areas.
Grounded in the articulated needs and hopes of children and young people, the goal of this plan is to create a future where all children and young people have the supports they need to thrive.
The Plan plays a key role in bridging the gap between Government policies and initiatives, and children and young people’s voices and perspectives.
Zoë Robinson, Advocate for Children and Young People, says the plan aims to hold us all – government, business, and the community – to account for the promises made to children and young people.
“We are excited to work with all of our stakeholders to ensure children and young people are heard, and that we include them in the design, implementation and evaluation of our work,” she says.
“This plan is co-designed by children and young people. It is in their words and focuses on their hopes and goals.
“It considers children and young people from across NSW and has a particular focus on our most vulnerable.
“We invite you to read through the plan and consider how your organisation might use the findings and goals in it to help shape the world of the children and young people we serve.”
