Inquiry Into The Commonwealth Commissioner For Children And Young People Bill 2010

Our strong support over many years for the establishment of a national Commissioner for Children and Young People is based on our individual and systemic advocacy undertaken with and on behalf of children and young people with disability. PWD has highlighted this through submissions to national and State-based inquiries, through our election platforms, at meetings with Members of Parliament and senior bureaucrats and in NGO Shadow Reports to UN Treaty bodies. It is within context that we provide the following submission on the Commonwealth Commissioner for Children and Young People Bill 2010.
