Archived information on at-risk youth
This comprehensive report looks at ways to improve the support provided to young people during their transition to independence, and to strengthen pathways for young people who do not, or are not likely to, go straight from school to further education and training or full-time employment. Through a series of consultative forums with young people and other interested stakeholders, the Taskforce considered the views of a wide range of young people including those living in urban, rural and remote areas and those who were institutionalised in either care or detention. Recommendations are made on the scope and direction of a Youth Pathways Action Plan to improve outcomes for all young people by strengthening existing pathways, improving early intervention assistance, helping those in crisis situations to quickly move out of them and strengthening families' and the community's capacity to help young people.

The taskforce was set up to provide advice to government on the scope and direction of a youth pathways action plan aimed at: improving support for young people and their families during young people's transition to independence; and strengthening pathways for those young people who do not, or are not likely to, go straight from school to further education and training or full-time employment and those who are not fully engaged with their community.
