YNOT Budget Priority Statement 2020-21

Date: Fri, 06/12/2019

This year YNOT has submitted a Budget Priority Statement (BPS) calling for one key ask - the development of the inaugral Tasmanian Youth Strategy and associated Action Plans. 

Young Tasmanians are not benefiting from a prosperous Tasmanian economy, with many being left behind. The development of a Tasmanian Youth Strategy will provide a more targeted and coordinated response to youth affairs in this State and will contribute to greater economic, cultural and social participation of young people in Tasmania.

Importantly, it is envisaged that the Strategy will provide a clear long term vision young Tasmanians and overarching direction for government and policy makers to proactively address youth affairs.
