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.
The Commissioner's team has been surveying children, 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.)
Surveys have now closed however there will be opportunities for children and young people to provide feedback on the draft resources. For further information contact the Commissioner's office.
