The Greens NSW submission to the Child Protection Legislative Reforms Discussion Paper
The NSW Government released a Discussion Paper on Child Protection Legislative Reforms in November 2012. In March 2013, Jan lodged a submission on behalf of The Greens NSW, responding to each of the 29 proposed reforms.
The Department of Community Services (Community Services) website has more information about the consultation process. Jan will continue to advocate for reforms that support vulnerable families and promote early interventions to prevent child abuse and neglect, and which encourage efforts to preserve and restore family relationships while ensuring the safety, welfare and wellbeing of children.
