COVID-19 Pandemic Recovery: Young People's Perspectives
Many young people feel the disruptions caused by the pandemic which occurred at a crucial time in their development. This report produced by Youth Action alongside young people and the youth sector, presents a range of recommendations on what is needed for NSW to adequately support the recovery of young people.
Strengthening social capital is key to the successful rebuilding of the economy and society post COVID, especially if we are to establish the conditions for young people to thrive and reach their full potential. Our state and our nation will need targeted investment to increase engagement and participation of young people, through supports and services in areas such as mental health, education, employment, through care for those in contact with law, justice, and child protection systems, and the expansion of youth specific services. Young people need to be actively involved in the design, implementation, and monitoring of these programs and services to ensure their effectiveness.
Youth Action’s COVID-19 Recovery Report draws on what we heard during our consultations throughout 2020 and 2021. Young people and the sector’s lived experiences of dealing with the impacts of COVID-19 strongly influenced their thoughts, ideas and recommendations about what is needed for society to recover.
