The draft Camden Youth Strategy 2022-2026 seeks to guide how Camden Council will support young people and the local youth sector over the next five years.

Almost 1500 local young people participated in the 2020/21 Camden Youth Consultation to inform Council how they want us to support them and what issues matter.

This consultation saw the emergence of five strategic priorities:

  • Youth Mental Health & Wellbeing
  • Youth Employment
  • Community Connections
  • Youth Voice & Empowerment
  • Safety

These focus areas were then addressed during development of the draft Strategy, which clearly identifies the actions needed to help support our young people, address issues that matter to them and help them achieve the futures they see for themselves.

Take a look

Please take some time to look through and consider how Camden Council plans to achieve the aspirations of our youth.
