In supporting young people in the Blue Mountains our focus is on developing a safe and healthy environment where young people feel a sense of belonging, are being cared for and have opportunities to reach their full potential. 

We endeavour to stay informed by continually consulting with young people through the Youth Council and giving them opportunities to voice their opinions on the future of the Blue Mountains. We also work with community partners to ensure appropriate youth support services are available for young people to thrive.

Our Community Development team includes a specialist Community Development Officer – Young People, who is supported by a Social Researcher, a Program Leader and other team-members, all working together with staff across Council, community services and organisations.
