The Commissioner Says

Commissioner Says

Helen Connolly is a South Australian leader whose role is to influence key stakeholders, civil society organisations and policy makers by ensuring they know about the needs and interests of children and young people in South Australia. Through her work, Helen is driving the message that listening to children and young people should be a community priority, and that the welfare of South Australia’s children and young people should be at the heart of everything we do.

Helen uses a variety of ways to do this including making regular contributions to ‘Medium’, where she writes about issues or projects related to the rights of children and young people that are of interest or concern to her. Helen also has a LinkedIn account where she shares articles of interest she has read or written, across her networks and for a broader audience interested in matters relating to the rights of children and young people. 

Helen is often asked for comments by mainstream media and also writes regular ‘opinion pieces’.  These can be viewed on the Us in the Media page.
