Commissioner Helen Connolly has today released her annual series of reports on South Australia’s progress toward meeting recommendations made by the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child. The recommendations relate to concerns the Committee has in relation to Australian children and young people.

The suite of reports measure progress across seven child rights areas reviewed on behalf of the 369,400* children and young people (under 18 years) living in South Australia. They list the initiatives and programs that have been introduced to address areas of concern, and outline where gaps and shortfalls remain. Released each year to coincide with International Human Rights Day (10 December) the Commissioner’s Child Rights Progress Reports examine Child Health, Child Justice, Child Protection, Education, Physical Punishment, Disability, and the Environment.
