Why are we here?

    We are seeking your input to help shape SA's new Youth Action Plan, which aims to ensure the South Australian Government better meets the needs of young people aged 12-25 by delivering fairer and more equitable access to opportunities, resources and supports.

    Can I give feedback only on the things that I am interested in?


    When completing the online survey, you can answer all the questions or just choose the areas you are most interested in - simply skip anything that you are not interested in. There are no mandatory questions.

    Remember that you can also use the Quick poll and/or the Ideas tool to provide quick feedback about things you may especially care about. For example, you can use the Ideas tool about specific areas such as health, safety and justice, education and employment, connections, and/or youth participation.

    Alternatively, if you prefer, you can send us specific feedback via email (youthactionplan@sa.gov.au) or post (SA Youth Action Plan, GPO Box 292, Adelaide SA 5001).

    How long is the public consultation period open for?

    The public consultation period will be open for approximately two months - you have until 06 August 2023 to have your say. 

    Can I remain anonymous?

    Absolutely yes! 

    You don't need to register or to create any account to participate in this conversation.

    Any information provided through the survey and other tools on this website is anonymous. Any information provided via e-mail or in-person will remain confidential. All the information provided will be used to formulate a report to inform the next Youth Action Plan and you will not be identified.
