What’s this about?

The Office of the Children’s Guardian is an independent statutory body that oversees organisations to uphold children’s right to be safe.

The Children’s Guardian Act 2019 commenced on 1 March 2020. It brought together most of the functions of the Children’s Guardian under one Act. Giving effect to the view of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, the Act expanded the Children’s Guardian’s functions to include reportable conduct, the Official Community Visitor scheme and the residential care workers register.

A review of the Act will determine whether its policy objectives remain valid, and the terms remain appropriate for achieving those objectives.
