Response to Discussion Paper, Attorney- General’s Department – Review of Domestic Violence Laws

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.  We have a major interest in preventing children from requiring statutory protection and protecting children from harm.

This response is prepared on the basis of the Office’s experience in investigating individual matters and talking with experts in the area of children and domestic violence.
