What we do

The Commissioner for Children is an independent, statutory office responsible to the Parliament of Tasmania. The Commissioner's functions include promoting the rights and well-being of children and young people along with examining and advising Government on policies, practices and services provided for children and laws affecting their health, welfare, care, protection and development.

Commissioners vision
for 2015 and beyond.

My vision is to work collaboratively with the Tasmanian community to advocate for all children and young people to ensure children's rights are promoted and their voices are heard.
