Let's get started

Young people aged 12 to 25 in Eastern Victoria (Towong, Alpine and East Gippsland Shire), this is your chance to have your say on bushfire recovery in your community! We believe young people are experts in your own lives and that you have important contributions to make in bushfire recovery and rebuilding efforts.

YACVic is working with the Victorian Government to hear directly from young people and community members in rural and regional areas, about the response and recovery from the devastating bushfires across Eastern Victoria, and your experiences and ideas for a better future. We are also running training workshops on youth advocacy and leadership to develop your skills in advocacy, leadership and decision-making.

The aim of this work is to support and build the capacity of local young people to be actively engaged and included in the bushfire recovery and rebuilding work, to ensure your voices are heard as part of this process.

We want all community members and young people to contribute to this work. Our voices, our desires and our opportunities needs to be at the centre of this work.

Please Note. We understand that not all issues related to bushfire recovery and rebuilding are the same, and you may feel that some of the questions in this survey do not relate to you.

Sometimes, talking about these issues can be difficult and it may bring up difficult memories and experiences. You can access telephone support by contacting:
