The Department of Communities is developing a new youth strategy for​ Western Australia.

The strategy will be developed following consultation with young people, youth service providers and government agencies.

Input from these groups will aid the development of a coordinated and targeted strategy designed to improve the delivery of programs and services to support young Western Australians.

The first step towards the new strategy is the 'Better Choices: Youth in WA' discussion paper, and we need your feedback. Download the discussion paper.

The deadline for feedback on the discussion paper is COB Monday 18 December 2017. You can provide feedback in one of two ways:
