The Ministry of Youth Development (MYD) has released its latest Youth Plan, which aims to ensure youth voices and leadership play an important role in decision-making and action.

Although the Youth Plan is for all young people (12 to 24 year olds), it acknowledges that some groups of young people experience higher threats to wellbeing, based on factors such as their ethnicity, sexuality, gender identity, disability, and geographic location.

The Plan emphasises collaboration between government agencies and the youth and community sectors. Future actions will therefore be led by a diverse mix of government agencies, and community and youth sector organisations.
