Child Safety, Welfare and Wellbeing Information Sharing Proposed Legislative Model

Child Safety, Welfare and Wellbeing Information Sharing Proposed Legislative Model

By Family Law Section

Child Welfare 


The Law Institute of Victoria (LIV) has prepared a submission to Nous Group in relation to the proposed amendments to the Child Safety and Wellbeing Information Sharing Legislative Framework.

The submission focuses on the LIV's concern to ensure that any proposed model whereby data about an individual, particularly vunerable children who may be at risk, that is is to be shared between prescribed organisations or persons contains appropriate safeguards to ensure the rights of the child and other individuals, - including rights to privacy and the rights of children to be heard and participate in processes - are not unduly overridden. The LIV acknowledges there is a need to build a stronger evidence data base to better assess, monitor and identify those children who may become at risk ideally at a stage prior to those children actually being at risk.
