Bendigo is the first city in Australia to be recognised as a Child Friendly City by the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) in January 2007.
For more information contact the Young Communities Team on 5434 6000 or email us.
Living in a child friendly city is a commitment by the whole community to embrace the vision of children and strive to achieve a sustainable urban future for the city.
Bendigo's Child Friendly City initiative originally emerged through funding received from the Commonwealth Government's "Stronger Families, Stronger Communities" strategy. This Communities for Children initiative locally known in Bendigo as Joining Together for Bendigo Children, provided increased momentum for us to partner with the community to formalise our commitment to children as citizens.
