• Confirmed State Government spending over the next 12 months;
• planned future spending over the next three financial years; and

Each year, YACWA analyses the State Budget to determine where money is being spent and what impact it will have on the lives of young people and the effectiveness of the youth sector. This State Budget Analysis provides an overview of the State Government’s key investments as well as commentary and analysis on whether this spending aligns with the identified needs of young people and the youth sector.
