Significant issues impacting the agency
Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse
Actions to address the findings and 409 recommendations in the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse Final Report published in late 2017 will be a strong focus for the Commissioner. The Commissioner will continue to promote the use of child safe policies and practices to Western Australian organisations through the Child Safe Organisations project and further work will be undertaken to understand and respond to children and young people with harmful sexual behaviours.
School and Learning Consultation
The Commissioner will continue to promote and work on the recommendations of the School and Learning Consultation reports that reflected the voices of children and young people and was tabled in Parliament in January 2018.
Wellbeing Monitoring Framework
Work will continue on the development of the online Wellbeing Monitoring Framework – Indicators of Wellbeing data framework which will be regularly updated to ensure relevant and timely data sharing. To complement this work, the Commissioner will explore the opportunity to develop a Student Health and Wellbeing Survey instrument in partnership with Telethon Kids Institute.
