Response to the Consultation Paper on Keeping Them Safe – In Our Care

Among other statutory functions the Guardian for Children and Young People acts as an advocate for the interests of children under the guardianship, or in the custody, of the Minister for Families and Communities.  It is in this capacity that the following submission is made.

This submission is prepared on the basis of the Office’s experience in investigating individual matters, talking with children, workers and carers about their experience, listening to the young people associated with our Office and our knowledge of policies and practice in Families SA and alternative care agencies.
