Commissioner for Children and Young People Tasmania – Developing Resources for Children and Young People

  The National Office of Child Safety has engaged the Western Australian Commissioner for Children and Young People to develop resources for children and young people explaining their right to speak up when they feel uncomfortable, unsafe or marginalised, and outlining the steps they can take to raise their concerns or make complaints within organisations.   These resources are being designed for use by organisations in all Australian states and territories. As part of this project, the Western Australian Commissioner is also developing a resource to help adults to talk about the resources with children and young people in their lives, communities and organisations.

The content and design of the resources is being developed in consultation with children and young people as well as parents, carers or other significant adults, from a wide range of backgrounds and life experiences across Australia.

The Western Australian Commissioner’s office is currently consulting children and young people, organisations and individuals across Australia including through online surveys for children and young people (10-17 years) and adults, and online drop-in sessions.

The surveys will be live until COB Monday 7 September 2020: Adult – https://ccypwa.syd1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_29KSq9PNfd91uT3
