Thank you to everyone who participated.

Council is developing a new strategy for children, young people, and their families from 0 to 25 years old. The Families, Youth and Children Strategy will replace our previous Early Years Strategy 2011-2021 and the Youth Services Strategy 2019-2021.

This strategy will help Council and our partners to work together to improve outcomes for children, young people, and their families.

Please tell us what you think is important to help make Darebin a great place for our children, young people and families as we develop this new strategy together with our partners. You can share your feedback either by completing the survey or sharing your vision or big idea (click on the "Share your vision or big idea" tab to post text or a photo, drawing or video).
