Connect: A municipal plan for children, young people and their families

‘Connect’ is our 5-year plan to support the wellbeing of children, young people and their families in the City of Whittlesea, for 2013 to 2018.

Informed by demographic data, research evidence and community feedback, the plan supports our whole community, with an emphasis on prevention, early intervention and creating resilient and cohesive communities.

The plan focuses on the following 5 strategic directions:

  1. Partnerships and continuous dialogue with children, young people, parents and the community
  2. Family strengthening
  3. Resilient and robust children and young people
  4. Social and physical infrastructure for diversity, all ages and abilities
  5. Opportunities to connect

‘Connect’ responds to the aspirations, priorities and vulnerabilities voiced by local children, young people, parents, carers, the community and partners.
