Committee Details

Committee on Children and Young People

The Committee reviews the performance of the Advocate for Children and Young People and can also examine trends and changes in services and issues affecting children, and report on any changes needed to the functions and procedures of the Advocate.

The Committee has been established to oversight the Advocate, rather than having more general responsibilities in relation to children and young people.

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

The Committee does not have the power to investigate particular conduct.

The Committee's functions can be found in Part 7 of the Advocate for Children and Young People Act 2014.
