New children's commissioner

New children's commissioner

By Law Institute Victoria

Child Welfare 


Victoria’s new Commissioner for Children and Young People Liana Buchanan will have responsibility for a new reportable conduct scheme in Victoria to improve child safety. The scheme, which follows the Betrayal of Trust inquiry and is yet to be designed and legislated, will require the centralised reporting of allegations of child abuse by workers or volunteers in organisations with a high level of responsibility for children – out-of-home care, youth justice services, schools, and child care. Under the scheme the commission will have greater oversight powers. It will be empowered to monitor investigations into abuse and report on trends, share information with key organisations to lift child safety and hold the power to inquire into the safety systems of organisations engaged in child-related work.
