Children and young people information

When Child Safety is making an important decision about an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander child, the child and the child's family have a right to have a say and to have an independent person help make sure their voice is heard.

The Independent Person booklet - for children and young people (PDF, 853 KB) can be printed and used to talk with a child or young person about who can be an independent person, the benefits of having an independent person and where to go for more information.

You can also ask for a copy of the booklet from your Child Safety Officer.
