CYPF (Advocacy, Workforce, and Age settings) Amendment Bill (2016)


1 July 2016

The Office of the Children’s Commissioner supports the direction of the final report from the Expert Advisory Panel and the Government’s objective of reforming the care and protection and youth justice systems to ensure they are child-centred. This bill is the first in a series of legislative changes to give effect to these reforms. This bill is a positive development, but we are concerned that it does not go far enough to ensure the new operating model is child-centred.
