Needs of Young People in the Parramatta CBD Research Project


Parramatta City Council

We researched the needs of young people in the Parramatta CBD to enable Parramatta City Council to identify ways to better support teenagers and young people and to inform a Teenagers and Young People Strategy for the Parramatta LGA. Extensive community engagement included a place activation event, a dedicated Snapchat account, a Design Thinking workshop with local high school students and focus groups with young leaders and service providers. The research project identified best practice frameworks to support and engage young people in cities and evaluated the appropriateness of these approaches for the Parramatta CBD.
