In 2019, the Otago Community Trust commissioned Mātāwai Consultancy and Gemma Griffin Consultancy to undertake research on the current situation for youth in Otago to help achieve its strategic priority of improving youth health, wellbeing and employment. The report was developed as a scoping study and is expected to be built on as OCT continues to deepen its impact in this strategic area.
The report brings together relevant data and local sector expertise to provide an overview of who young people are, what work is already happening that can be built on, where opportunities exist and where funding is best targeted. It also identifies areas for future research and analysis.
