Youth Plan 2021-2025

The Shire of Broome Youth Plan 2021 – 2025 guides the development and implementation of key youth programs and services being delivered or proposed by the Shire of Broome. 

Young people have unique perspectives, aspirations and needs requiring specific approaches to engaging and supporting them.

There are several different factors which, when combined, increase the likelihood of young people being happy, healthy contributors to their communities.

The Shire’s role implementing the Plan ensures appropriate facilities and services are provided to meet the needs of youth in the region.

It is also the responsibility of the Shire to advocate for, and in some instances, partner with, stakeholders to ensure core objectives of the plan are achieved.

This Plan has been informed by the Youth Framework 2016 – 2018, West Kimberley Youth Strategy 2014 –2016, and the Kimberley Regional Strategic Framework.

Building upon this research, further consultation through 2020 has consolidated a list of key actions to focus the Shire’s efforts over the life of this Plan.

These are:

  • Youth Services Coordination
  • Youth Facilities and Services
  • Youth Diversionary Programs
  • Youth Leadership Opportunities
