National Commissioner Needed to Protect Youth Rights

AYAC has joined with a number of key State, Territory and Federal youth sector and youth-led organisations in supporting Greens Senator Hanson-Young’s Commonwealth Commissioner for Children and Young People 2010 Bill but has also highlighted the need for a Deputy Commissioner whose sole mandate is focused on Closing the Gap.

AYAC also calls on the Senate Committee to pay serious attention to the views of young people on decisions that directly affect them.
