The Department of Human Services (DHS) is the endorsed lead agency for the Strong Futures SA Youth Action Plan. DHS has led the development of the Plan and will monitor and report back on its implementation. DHS will also facilitate ongoing engagement with young people across all stages of the Plan.
The Plan includes both a comprehensive map of existing youth-related initiatives across government agencies and the Plan’s own Strong Futures Projects. DHS will facilitate the delivery of the Strong Futures Projects. This will include supporting the necessary collaboration across government and non-government agencies by establishing a project team for each project. These teams may include government agencies, private or community sector representatives and, importantly, young representatives.
