I am Lane Cove

Have you considered what it's like to be a young person in 2021? Now is your chance!

To celebrate Youth Week this April, we’re excited to share ‘I am Lane Cove’, a project developed by the Lane Cove’s Youth Team that aims to highlight the realities and perspectives of young people in 2021.

Questions that young people have answered in this video have been selected from questions sent in by the Lane Cove community.

Voices of Young People in Northern Sydney

Voices of Young People in Northern Sydney is a cross-Council project which surveyed young people in the region to gain an understanding of their experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is envisioned the data gathered will assist youth services in their response to support young people during the current pandemic and address any gaps in support. This project was a collaboration between Ku-ring-gai, Lane Cove, Mosman, North Sydney, Ryde and Willoughby councils.
