The NSW Youth Advisory Council has a statutory role to advise the NSW Government on issues of importance to young people.
The council also has a responsibility in monitoring and evaluating youth-related policies and legislation which affects young people.
The 12 Council members are aged under 25 years and come from all over the State. They are broadly representative of the diversity of young people living in NSW.
Following the enactment of the Advocate for Children and Young People Act 2014, the responsibility for supporting the Council now rests with the NSW Advocate for Children and Young People.
Information about the Youth Advisory Council’s previous activities can be found in its Annual Reports (2002-2013).
