Young people are at the heart of the Toowoomba Region's future. This strategy provides a framework for how Council will support young people to actively shape the development of our communities, achieve their aspirations and enrich the civic, economic, cultural and social life of the Region.

To identify priority areas for a new strategy, a program of long-term consultation with young people, families and the regional youth sector was conducted. Built upon the evidence base, relationships and role as a local government, the Youth Strategy 2025-2030 is structure around four interlinked goals:

  1. Inclusion and participation
  2. Connections and wellbeing
  3. Experiences and diversity
  4. Services and support systems

Each goal represents an area of practice, grounded in principles of community development, early intervention and community self-determination. Alongside the action plan, this framework for youth engagement will guide our work for the next five years.

The Youth Strategy 2025-2030 is a living document. As we continue this shared journey, we welcome contributions from our communities to support, deliver and sustain the strategy's outcomes.
