good lives, can be heard and can have the best chance to participate and contribute. We are doing this by removing barriers that prevent social inclusion and participation. We are doing this by increasing opportunities for young people to build their skills and their capacity to participate in their local community. We are doing this to improve outcomes for young people who are vulnerable or at risk of being pushed to the margins. Importantly, we are doing this side by side with the broader community because we know that Canberrans believe that everyone deserves a good life and a fair go.

As the next step for young people, the ACT government will be developing the ACT children and young people’s commitment. The commitment will be a collaborative effort between government and the community to set the broad direction to promote the rights of children and young people. This work to bring the commitment to life will ensure the voices of children and young people can be heard. I look forward to sharing the progress of this work. Madam Speaker, I commend the final report on the young people’s plan 2009-14 to you and present the following paper:
