This is your chance to be heard….

City of Port Phillip is running a youth consultation. From September to November we want young people aged 8 to 25 who live, work, study, play sport or hang out in in the City of Port Phillip to tell us:

What is important to you?
What you like about the City of Port Phillip? and
What we need in the City of Port Phillip to make it better for young people?

Tell us what’s in your top 3 at

By completing this survey you will have a voice in the Port Phillip Council’s next youth strategy. This five year commitment will reflect and work to address the wants and needs of all young people.
