The Charter for Children and Young People

The Charter for Children and Young People is a list of twenty things children and young people should have to be safe, happy and well – no matter who you are or where you’re from.

The Government in South Australia uses this list to make decisions that affect kids.

Children and young people helped shape the Charter and it reflects what’s important to them – things like having a good home life, being listened to, and being respected and valued.

Best of all, because the Charter is protected by law, adults must pay attention to it.

What’s involved?

We’ve created the Charter Ambassador Program (CAP) as an opportunity for you to say what you need to be safe, happy and well, influence change and to learn new skills.

As a Charter Ambassador, you will:
