The Sunshine CPLAN began with a focus on the youth organisations in the three regional councils in the south of the region: Moreton Bay, Sunshine Coast and Gympie. In May 2011 about twenty youth organisations from across this area began meeting to develop their CPLAN. One of the key focus areas was ‘What would it take to create a vibrant youth sector in this region?’ To respond to this question, the Sunshine CPLAN members felt that it would first be valuable to create a foundational document that would provide all youth organisations across the region with an articulation of their shared values and common practice, and provide a clear expectation for youth work practice and service delivery in the Sunshine region.
