Youth Voice NT

What is Youth Voice NT?

NTCOSS has been funded by the Northern Territory Government for five years to deliver a Youth Advocacy program across the Northern Territory (Youth Voice NT).

This project aims to raise the voices of young people in the Territory who might not have had the opportunity to have their say and improve engagement with Government in the development of future polices and strategies that directly affect us. This includes:

  • Aboriginal young people
  • Culturally and linguistically diverse young people
  • Young people in remote NT
  • Young parents
  • Young people not engaged in education, training or employment
  • Young people in the out of home care system
  • Young people at risk of or involved in the youth justice system
  • Young people at risk of or experiencing homelessness
  • Young people with chronic health conditions and mental health conditions
  • Young people with alcohol and other drug use
  • Young LGBTQIA+ people
  • Young people from low socioeconomic backgrounds
  • Young people with disability
  • Young people who have experiences with domestic, family, and sexual violence

In lieu of a youth peak body in the NT, NTCOSS sought this funding to establish a youth peak role in the NT.
