Youth Transitions 18-25: A Plan for Action

Have your say!

Tasmanians are invited to share their thoughts, ideas, and suggestions about how young people 18-25 years can be better supported as they transition to adulthood and independence. The Discussion Paper and Consultation Process builds on what we learnt through a review of academic literature and mapping of existing programs and policies, and heard from young people and stakeholders working in community, youth and government sectors. 

Feedback in response to the Discussion Paper must be received by 11:59PM Tuesday 28 November 2023.

What is the Youth Transitions 18-25 years Action Plan Project?

YNOT is developing a whole-of-government Action Plan that will focus on and address the needs of young people 18-25 years as they transition to adulthood. The Action Plan will align to the Tasmanian Child and Youth Wellbeing Strategy, and will set program and policy direction for young people over the coming years. The Action Plan will be developed in collaboration with young people 18-25 years, key government, youth and community sector stakeholders and the Tasmanian community.
