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.
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.
