Camden seeks feedback on families strategy

Camden Council is seeking community feedback on a plan which aims to support,
understand and address the needs of children and families in the local community.

The draft Children and Families Strategy 2023-27 is now on public exhibition.

The Strategy identifies opportunities to improve the lives of children and families in the
Camden area under the direction of five key priorities: safety, education, informed, health and wellbeing; and recreation and leisure.

Mayor, Ashleigh Cagney urged the local community to review the plan and make a submission.

“We understand childhood development and happy families are linked to the community, environment and infrastructure which surrounds us,” she said.

“This Strategy aims to better understand the needs of children, identify any shortfalls in existing services and explore solutions to address them.

“More than a third of the households in the Camden area contain children aged 0-15 and
so getting this Strategy right is really important to us.

“I encourage everyone to check out the draft Strategy and share their thoughts.”

The Children and Families Strategy is on public exhibition until 14 November.
