Commissioner for Children’s “Have Your Say” Regional Advisory Groups

Do you know someone under 18 that would be interested in sharing their views on issues for children and young people?

The new Commissioner for Children, Mark Morrissey, would like to invite you to assist him with establishing a new way of hearing children and young people’s voices across Tasmania about the issues they face through new regional children and young person advisory groups.

There will be two regional advisory groups in each region, North, North West and South.  The groups will be six to eight members with one for children under 12 years of age and the other for young people from 12 to 17 years of age. The advisory groups will meet in the region three to four times a year.

Children and young people are being sought, who are interested in being part of these groups. 

An information pack for applicants is available which includes a flyer, background information and an application form.

Applications close on Friday, 27 February 2015.

The Commissioner is very interested in hearing the voices of as many children and young people across Tasmania as possible and this is one means of achieving that.

See the Commissioner for Children website for more details.
