The Commissioner engages with stakeholders across South Australia, not only to build relationships with those who can make meaningful change to the quality of SA children’s lives, but also to foster interconnections between service providers so they can enhance outcomes across systems and issues. Meeting regularly with key stakeholders ensures the Commissioner can also share information children and young people have told her themselves to ensure solutions devised and changes made reflect what SA children and young people themselves have said they most want and need.
