Marrickville Youth Recreation Study

Marrickville Council

We worked with Marrickville Council to undertake extensive research into the current and future recreation needs of young people aged 12 to 17 years and 18 to 24 years living in the Marrickville LGA. This research will add to the Recreation Needs Research – Strategic Directions for Marrickville, providing a more detailed understanding of the unique recreation needs of young people who live, work, study and play in the area. Cred collected a strong evidence base including delivery of innovative and place-based consultation with local young people through go-along surveys, intercept surveys, workshops, and social media.  The study identified opportunities for access and participation in recreation activities and made recommendations (including resources) for the strategic provision of recreation facilities, programs, and services for young people.
