Council’s draft Children and Families Strategy is now open for community feedback!

The new Children and Families Strategy will replace the Maroondah City Council Children’s Plan 2015-2019 as Council’s key strategic document regarding children and their families. It is Council’s commitment to creating a connected community where all children and their families thrive.

The Children and Families Strategy seeks to:

  • Support Council to raise the wellbeing of Maroondah’s children and their families
  • Utilise a strong evidence base to help Council meet the needs and aspirations of Maroondah’s children and their families
  • Actively engage children and families in the development of the Strategy and its Action Plans
  • Guide and focus Council’s work with and for children and families into the future

The development of the Children and Families Strategy was informed by extensive community consultation, service reviews, service infrastructure needs analysis and research from 2018 to 2020. This has established a strong evidence base with the needs and strengths of Maroondah’s children and their families at its heart.

At its meeting on 22 June 2020, Maroondah City Council (‘the Council’) resolved that the draft Children and Families Strategy be placed on public exhibition from 23 June to 21 July 2020, for community comment and feedback.
