'No Wrong Door' Practice Principles

Young People’s Charter of Practice Principles

10,000-11,000 young people in the Frankston Mornington Peninsula area are estimated to be at-risk or highly vulnerable. Further, early school leaving rates across the two catchments are higher than the state average. In response to these issues, the Youth Wellbeing and Stakeholder Advisory Group (YWSAG) have established the Frankston Mornington Peninsula Young People’s Charter of Practice Principles (the Charter).

The Charter consists of seven shared principles aimed to help build a shared practice culture between local services and schools to help young vulnerable people in our area get their learning, health and wellbeing needs met.

The principles are grounded in current legal, policy and practice frameworks in the health, community service and education sectors. They are needed to stop vulnerable young people falling through the cracks.
