Initial key themes identified through consultation to inform the South Australian Youth Action Plan

In July 2023, the South Australian Government launched public consultation on the South Australian Youth Action Plan, which had over 880 people engaged in consultation through a YourSAy survey, workshops and written submissions, 728 of these were young people.

The consultation covered many important topics, but six key themes were identified as being the most prevalent areas needing response:

  • Increased access to mental health support.
  • Increased connection to services and activities available in the young person’s community.
  • Increased access to sport and recreation activities.
  • Increased support with post-school pathways, including the teaching of ‘life skills’ and ‘how to adult’.
  • Improved access to housing and rental accommodation.
  • Include young people in decision making.

A full consultation report is in development and will be released later in 2023. This consultation is just the start of an ongoing process of active consultation and engagement with young people and youth stakeholders, as we develop and implement the South Australian Youth Action Plan.
