report cover

This report from 2022 provides a summary of what the Commissioner heard
during consultations with children, young people, and parents.

Viewing adult systems through children’s eyes requires a shift in thinking that is future-focused and grounded in child rights. It also requires meaningful engagement with children and young people, as well as with their parents and families, to ensure they have a say in the design and delivery of the systems and services that impact them.

Commentary about interactions with systems has been included in the hope that this will be the catalyst for more detailed discussions and analysis that can inform service
system responses to children of incarcerated parents.
