Awareness Raising:

The CCYP informs children and young people and the broader community about their rights and the role of the Commissioner for Children and Young people in promoting and protecting and supporting these rights.


The CCYP engages and empowers children and young people and supports them as critical stakeholders in service and program planning governance and operational activities.


The CCYP encourages and supports organisations, systems and structures to actively involve children and young people in decision making in areas that impact on their interests and well-being and to engage in dialogue and debate on issues affecting them.

Systemic Advocacy:

The CCYP utilises research, policy advocacy and investigative methodologies to lead and complement government and community involvement in development, implementation and evaluation of laws, programs and policies that impact on children and young people.
