The Advocate for Children and Young People (ACYP) is committed to building a future where all children and young people are given the opportunity to thrive and reach their fullest potential. We want a community that celebrates the diversity of children and young people, encourages their participation in society and gives them every chance to flourish. ACYP invites the reader to join in this commitment.
Under the Advocate for Children and Young People Act 2014, the Advocate is required to prepare, in consultation with the relevant Minister(s), a three-year strategic plan for children and young people in NSW.
The focus of this strategy is to:
- Elevate the voices of children and young people.
- Identify the key issues and needs that children and young people have articulated and provide them with an opportunity to influence the solutions.
- Provide a roadmap that responds to their stated needs by identifying relevant government priorities and initiatives.
