It is a responsibility of the Commissioner to consult with a broad range of children and young people throughout WA each year. The scope and goals for this are set out in the Commissioner for Children and Young People Act 2006 and the Strategic Plan.
Consultation will comprise a number of discrete projects, involving the Commissioner (or the staff of the office, or a consultant/contractor employed to act on the Commissioner’s behalf) seeking the considered views of children and young people on a range of issues in both metropolitan and regional locations across Western Australia.
1,500 children and young people consulted.
Key Effectiveness Indicator 1.2
Extent to which issues impacting upon children and young people are researched, advocated and promoted.
The Commissioner’s role includes analysis and interpretation of information collected through consultation and research processes to identify issues and trends affecting children and young people. The Commissioner is responsible for making representations that explore the impact of these issues and advocate for, and promote the views of children and young people and what is in the best interests of their wellbeing.

- Children and young people attending events = 200 metro/100 regional
- Website publication downloads = 4,000
