The State of Greater Shepparton's Children Report
A report on the health, wellbeing and educational status of Greater Shepparton’s children was launched in September.
The report contains data for children and young people from birth to 18 years and across more than 100 areas such as breastfeeding, dental health, kinder attendance, school readiness, literacy and numeracy, school retention, mental health, teen births, crime and safety and family violence.
This is the first time such data has been collated providing a snapshot of the wellbeing of young people in the region compared with State averages.
Funding for the report was provided by the Sir Andrew and Lady Fairley Foundation through the GS Lighthouse Project as well as DEECD, Best Start and Communities for Children.
The report is an important benchmark allowing for a community conversation about the sort of future we want for our young people.
