Overview

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 baby's first 2 years).

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.

“My vision for Tasmania is that no matter where you live, no matter what your background is, no matter what your circumstances are – opportunities will be there and if you want to grasp those opportunities a better life will be within your reach.”

We all know Tasmania is a beautiful place to live. I want it to be the best place to live, grow up and raise a family.

To help me achieve this vision, I need your help.

Please share your views, hopes and dreams for children and young people in Tasmania. I need to hear your ideas for action so I know what’s important to you. Your voice is important – have your say on this website. I look forward to hearing from you.

Peter Gutwein - Premier of Tasmania

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.
