Help us improve our safety content online

Information to help keep you safe

The project is now closed.

Thank you to everyone who participated.

Here's what we asked you:

We looked at the Queensland Government Youth website stats, and it appears that a lot of you are interested in finding out more info about how to stay safe. We asked you to take a quick survey to help us better understand what safety issues matter to you.


What you told us:

As part of the survey, you told us that violence at home and your personal safety when you’re out are the most important issues to you when it comes to safety. Many of you were also concerned about bullying and crime in your neighbourhood. If you needed some help, you would usually turn to your friends first, knowing that you could also reach out to your family or the police if you needed to.

You also gave us some great feedback about the Queensland Government Youth website. You suggested some ideas about how we can make the information easier for you to use, including adding more graphics to the site. You told us we had some really useful stuff online and we should tell more people about the Youth website smiley


  • Survey closed

    We asked you how we can improve the information about safety issues for young people on the Queensland Government Youth website. The survey closed on 21 February 2019.

  • Next steps

    We’re working on improving the Youth website based on the feedback you gave us. Here are some of the things we are looking to do to make the website more useful for you:

  • Step 1

    Updating the information we currently have on the website 

  • Step 2

    Ensuring that the information we share is easy to read 

  • Step 3

    Finding more information to share with you on the topics that you told us you would like to know more about 

  • Step 4

    Making new information on the website easier for you to find by placing it on the homepage 

  • Step 5

    Adding more information that might make it easier for your friends to understand what they can do to help with these issues  

  • Step 6

    Sharing some fancy new graphics or videos that can help explain a few things in an easier way  

  • Other actions

    You also mentioned it would be good if we could promote the Youth website in schools, universities and other places where young people hang out. This is something we’re looking at as well.

We created the Queensland Government Youth website to help you easily navigate information about support services and activities. On the site you can find information about:

  • education and training
  • work and career
  • life skills and turning 18
  • driving and transport
  • health and looking after yourself
  • sport and leisure
  • being safe and knowing your rights
  • family and social support
  • how to get involved and have your say
