CCYP Permanency Amendments Inquiry

CCYP Permanency Amendments Inquiry

By Clara Bradley

Child Welfare 


The LIV made a submission to the Victorian Commission for Children and Young People Inquiry into the implementation of amendments arising from the Children, Youth and Families Amendment (Permanent Care and Other Matters) Act 2014 (Permanency Amendments). The LIV is gravely concerned about many aspects of the Permanency Amendments and its impact on Victorian children, many of whom come from disadvantaged and vulnerable backgrounds. Of particular concern to the LIV are the timeframes imposed on parents for reunification, as they are currently restrictive and fetter the discretion of the Children's Court of Victoria to exercise independent judgment and make decisions that are in the individual child’s best interests.
