2019: The State of the Youth Sector Forum Report

The State of the Youth Sector Forum is an annual event held by the Youth Affairs Council of Western Australia (YACWA). This State of the Youth Sector Forum was held on 1 August 2019 and gathered over 140 youth sector representatives from across Western Australia.

This report is intended as a companion piece to YACWA’s annual Pre-Budget Submission document. Where the Pre-Budget Submission focuses closely on State Government levers to improve outcomes for young people, and the youth sector (i.e. government’s financial and strategic decisions), this report aims to provide capacity-building and direction to the youth sector.

This report does not aim to provide an empirical or quantitative overview of the environment for young people, but instead aims to provide a snapshot of the dominant feelings, trends and perceptions of the WA youth sector.
