We are experiencing unprecedented times in Tasmania, Australia and around the world, as the
COVID-19 pandemic affects our daily lives. Many young Tasmanians are experiencing special difficulties during this time.
I remain firmly committed to monitoring and advocating for the rights and wellbeing of all children and young people in Tasmania during the pandemic and beyond. To guide myself and my team’s monitoring and advocacy work throughout this period, I have developed a COVID-19 framework which, at a high level, outlines the focus and scope of my work during the response phase of the pandemic in Tasmania.
