Review of Children’s Guardian Act

The NSW Office of the Children’s Guardian is undertaking a statutory review of some parts of the Children’s Guardian Act 2019.

LGNSW will be making a submission and invites councils to provide comments for inclusion before Friday 5 August.

The focus areas for the statutory review are:

  • Reportable Conduct Scheme
  • Deputy Children’s Guardian role
  • Official Community Visitors Scheme
  • Child employment

The Children’s Guardian’s functions in relation to the child safe scheme (i.e the Child Safe Standards) are not subject to this review as the scheme began only on 1 February this year.

More information

If you have questions about the review, contact [email protected].

To provide input to LGNSW’s submission, contact Elizabeth Robertson, LGNSW Strategy Manager – Social and Community, at [email protected] or phone (02) 9242 4028.

Councils may also wish to provide feedback directly to the OCG by 19 August.
