For the first time, a whole of government structured framework has been developed to guide youth programs and service planning in an integrated way into the future. ‘Our Youth—Our Future’ also recognises existing strategic approaches for providing services and programs to young people and the importance of government working in partnership with the non-government sector to support young people.
