What CALD children and young people are saying

In February 2016 the Commissioner ran a consultation with children and young people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds.

The Youth Affairs Council Western Australia (YACWA) supported a group of CALD young people aged between 18 and 25 years to lead and report on consultations with their peers. This group of consultation peer leaders ran consultation activities with young people up to the age of 18 years in their local community.
