Healthy and productive families and communities

A holistic coordinated vision for Australian families which supports communities across a lifetime and reforms and recharges our health services.

Kylea has committed to working towards:

  • Priority funding of quality public education and increased support for post-high school education, training, and research.
  • A coordinated response to identify and address underlying systemic issues driving unprecedented mental health distress.
  • An immediate ‘Interim Review’ of our experiences during COVID-19 to enable better planning and greater preparedness; including the release of final recommendations on the Medicare Item number review.
  • Revitalising and increasing our health and aged care workforce.
  • Establishing a National Centre for Disease Control and Prevention, and the roll-out of an appropriately resourced National Preventive Health Strategy.

So far, North Sydney has achieved:

  • Progress around reforming marketing of harmful products including gambling, junk food, alcohol, and nicotine/vaping.
  • Launch of the the Parliamentary Friends of Youth Mental Health to deliver real change for young people living with mental health challenges.
  • Advocacy for Early Education & Childcare Centres and workers in relation to visas and pay gaps
  • Advocacy for better recognition of failures in the working environment for nurses
  • Input into a revitalised National Strategy for the Care and Support Economy.
  • Advocacy for a fairer national student loan scheme.
  • Assistance with over $330,000 in new grants to local community projects, including schools infrastructure upgrades, domestic violence and mental health services, religious organisations, grassroots sports clubs, men’s sheds, scouts, community gardens and more.
  • The inaugural North Sydney Youth Summit involving two delegates from each high school across the electorate. This group will meet regularly to ensure young Australians have a voice in how they are represented in Canberra.

Next steps:

  • Convene a Housing Summit to bring together key stakeholders to workshop solutions to the housing and rental crisis.
  • Continue to advocate for initiatives to specifically address intergenerational inequity.
