The Youth Strategy is intended to identify young people’s needs, set a clear direction for Council, find partners to work with and guide future support for youth development and activities.

Your feedback will help inform the final draft that goes back to Council for adoption. The Council will also be given a copy of all feedback to consider at this time. Feedback on the draft is open from 6 June – 30 June 2017. Please note that all feedback will be public information.

You can find a copy of the draft Youth Strategy online at nelson.govt.nz/youthstrategy, at any of Nelson’s three public libraries and at Council’s Customer Services Centre.Read More
