The project aimed to:
- Identify key policy and practice issues which can enhance the use of social media by disengaged or marginalised young people, including examples of effective policy and service implementation by organisations
- Develop an evidence base underpinning the key success factors contributing to use of social media by disengaged or marginalised young people
Feedback was sought from all parts of the Queensland Youth Sector including community agencies, local Government organisations and State/Federal Government frontline services who work directly with young people. More than 60 organisations and departments contributed to this report, either online or through in-person interviews, along with 25 young people identified as significantly disadvantaged by appropriate agencies.
