Other Commissioners

Every state and territory in Australia has a Commissioner and/or Guardian who represents children and young people.

The role of each Commissioner and Guardian is slightly different and based on the legislation of each jurisdiction.

Despite the differences, the Commissioners and Guardians collaborate where possible and meet regularly at the meeting of Australia and New Zealand's Children's Commissioner and Guardians Group (ANZCCG) to share information and plan joint advocacy projects.
