Committee Details

Committee on Children and Young People

The Committee was established to oversight the Advocate for Children and Young People, rather than having general responsibilities in relation to children and young people.

The Committee reviews the Advocate's performance and can report on any changes needed to its functions and processes.

The Committee also monitors and reviews the Children’s Guardian's administration of the Working With Children Check.

The Committee can look at trends and changes in services and issues affecting children, but cannot investigate particular conduct.

The Committee's functions are at Part 7 of the Advocate for Children and Young People Act 2014.
