Helping children and young people to make complaints

The Commissioner has been appointed by the National Office for Child Safety within the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet to develop resources for children and young people explaining their right to speak up when they feel uncomfortable, unsafe or marginalised, and outlining the steps they can take to raise their concerns or make complaints within organisations.

As part of this project, the Commissioner will also develop a resource to help adults to talk about the resources with children and young people in their lives, communities and organisations.

Get involved! 

The Commissioner's team would like to hear from children and young people and adults that play a significant role in the lives of children (parents, carers, coaches, teacher, police, youth/community workers, faith leaders, etc.). There are a number of ways to take part: 

Focus groups

If you or the children and young people in your organisation would like to participate in a focus group run by the Commissioner’s staff at a location of your choice in WA, please contact us.  

As a thank you we are offering a $150 voucher to purchase resources for the children and young people in your organisation.

There will be scheduled focus group sessions at the Commissioner’s office in Subiaco, on Friday 14th and Tuesday 18th August from 4pm-6pm (WST). Please contact us to register. 

Zoom focus group session

If you would like to attend a virtual drop in session on Zoom, we’ll be available on Wednesday 12 August between 3pm-5pm (WST).
