The Plan


ACYP NSW consultations with people who work with, by and on behalf of children and young people 2015

Through our Regional Consultation Program and NGO Forum we have heard from people who work in the interests of children and young people every day. We have held consultations in Illawarra Shoalhaven, Mid North Coast, Far Western NSW, Central Coast, Far West, Hunter New England and South Western Sydney!

This process has been invaluable in hearing from people who represent government departments, agencies and organisations that work in the interests of children and young people every day. We wish to thank all those who have participated. To learn more about the regional consultations please see below.
