Swan Hill Rural City Council’s Youth Strategic Plan 2015-2019 is an integrated approach to ensuring that the whole of Council continues to value and include young people in the work that they do.
This Council specific plan was informed by extensive community consultation and sets out the strategic priorities for both Council and its Youth Support Program over the next five years through achievable and effective strategies that utilise available resources to support young people across the municipality.
Swan Hill Rural City Council recognises the value of its young people as active and contributing community members. According to the 2011 ABS Census the Swan Hill municipality is home to 3, 810 young people aged 12-25 years. For the purpose of this plan young people are referred to as
those that are aged 12-25, who live, work or study in the Swan Hill municipality.
