Council provides a range of recreational, vocational and support programs to young people (12–24 years) and their families. The service is responsive to identified community needs and operates with the objective of ensuring that young people are happy, healthy, connected, engaged and empowered.

Council’s role in the provision of Youth Services includes direct service delivery, service planning and coordination, resourcing and support, provision of community facilities and youth sector development. The service aims to address the social, welfare, recreational and vocational needs of young people. This includes issues relating to drug and alcohol use, mental health and well-being, social isolation, relationships and youth & parent engagement.
