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 between the roles, the Commissioners meet twice a year at the meeting of Australia's Children's Commissioner and Guardians Group (ACCG).
