ACT Budget 2023

The Youth Coalition was successful in advocating for a range of initiatives announced in the 2023-24 ACT Budget, including:

  • Interim funding for the WOKE Program, which was at risk of imminent closure. The WOKE Program provides support to young people at risk of suicide and self-harm, and their families;
  • Funding to implement service system reforms related to raising the Minimum Age of Criminal Responsibility;
  • Establishment funding to support the ACT Child and Youth Mental Health Sector Alliance;
  • Funding supports for youth and community services in the Gungahlin region while a longer-term permanent youth and community centre is established.
