A Good Life from Birth to Adulthood in Hume - the Hume 0-24 Framework

Council has worked in partnership with our community to develop the Hume 0-24 Framework(PDF, 13MB) for 2019-2029.

Through extensive consultation with over 1300 children, young people, families and those who work with them throughout Hume City, The Hume 0-24 Framework(PDF, 13MB) has identified five key themes as necessary for a good life:

  • Theme 1: Feeling secure, cared for and safe
  • Theme 2: Access to life’s necessities
  • Theme 3: Health and wellbeing
  • Theme 4: Learning from birth to adulthood
  • Theme 5: Being involved, connected and valued

 

These five themes are an important tool to guide:

  • ways to talk about children and young people’s wellbeing,
  • service design and delivery,
  • program evaluation and review
  • the formation or strengthening of community partnership and networks,
  • the prioritisation of advocacy work; and
  • the allocation of resources, now and into the future.
