The Tasmanian Government is developing Tasmania’s first Child and Youth Wellbeing Strategy for 0-25 year olds. The Strategy will have a specific focus on the first 1,000 days (from pregnancy to 2 years of age).

We're seeking the views and ideas of Tasmanian children, young people, their caregivers, and the service sector to help develop the Strategy. You can have your say by getting creative, sending the Premier a postcard, completing a short survey, or making a formal submission to the Discussion Paper.

Our consultation partners, the Commissioner for Children and Young People, the Youth Network of Tasmania, the Mental Health Council of Tasmania, and Playgroup Tasmania are also holding face to face conversations statewide.

Get Involved

Tell us how we can make Tasmania the best place for children and young people. You can get creative by sharing art, stories or poems, writing a postcard directly to the Premier about your hopes and dreams for children and young people, or taking a short survey. Your responses will help us develop Tasmania's Child and Youth Wellbeing Strategy for 0-25 year olds.

Key Ingredients of Wellbeing

Wellbeing is when a child or young person feels loved and safe, has the things they need, is healthy, learning and participating and has a positive sense of culture and identity.
