With more than 55,000 families in Lake Mac and 31,000 children aged 0-11 years, we want to ensure our City is safe, fun and supportive to meet the needs of kids and families living in our vibrant City.

We want to hear from local families and kids about what is important to you, what you love about our community and what you would like to see more of to help us plan our actions and priorities for the next four years. Join our discussion boards below to share your ideas or complete a survey.

This strategy ensures the safety of children is considered and prioritised as we strive to create a child-safe City for our youngest citizens. Review our current strategy and recent achievements to see how Council is currently supporting families and children.
