Children and Young People

Strategic Priority - Children and Young people at the centre of city decisions: children having fun.

Our strategic priority is to have children and young people at the centre of city decisions.

This means children and young people who will:

  • be high achievers in education in Porirua at all levels
  • have stronger health outcomes
  • be engaged and active in leading city decisions
  • be informed and responsive
  • be strongly connected to their culture, families and community

The Council will support these outcomes through investment in sound infrastructure for future generations.

  • Increase children and young peoples' satisfaction with living in Porirua
  • Monitor the wellbeing of children and young people in the areas of education, health, employment, engagement and recreation.
