Important for

Alice Springs

Throughout the Child Friend Alice community consultations, children and young people identified many positive aspects to living in Alice Springs. Strong connections to friends and family was something the youth of our community value. Some of the benefits of living in a small town included the town’s environment and weather, and the ease for young people to get around. We also heard of concerns around crime, racism, alcohol-related antisocial behaviours, the need for cultural education and better educational opportunities. Alice Springs is a unique home and by working together, we can ensure our kids grow up to live happy and long lives.
