The Western Sydney Project is a place based advocacy program that has been delivered in the community for over 30 years. The project focuses on advocacy and capacity building for the youth sector and young people in the Western and South Western Sydney region. Youth Action manages the Western Sydney Youth Sector Network (WSYSN) of over 180 youth organisation representatives as well as the Western Sydney Young People’s Network and provide advocacy training in local schools.
The Western Sydney Project aims to ensure that young people’s voices are heard and their rights are realised. Find out about opportunities for young people and youth workers in Western Sydney by registering to our mailing lists below.
For the Youth Sector
To ensure the voices of young people are included in conversations that impact them, we gather young people’s opinions, knowledge and lived expertise through our consultations, information sharing and training. Read some of our previous reports: COVID-19 Pandemic Recovery: Young People’s Perspectives here and the Youth Employment Report 2022 here.
Our consultations with the Western Sydney youth sector inform our advocacy work, including on government policy and programs.
We support the Sector by sharing opportunities to build its capacity to deliver effective, evidence based, outcomes-oriented services.
Youth Action regularly engages with the youth sector and other local stakeholders to share opportunities, challenges and build community connections.
For Young People
Youth Action consults with young people from Western Sydney about decisions that impact them. The lived experiences and voices of young people contribute to our advocacy work.
We bring like-minded young people together to strengthen community connection. We provide capacity building opportunities for young people so they can engage in systems that affect them.
We regularly deliver place-based engagement to strengthen our connections with young people. We offer opportunities for young people to participate in our projects.
Youth Action is the peak body for young people and youth services in NSW.
