Charter for Children and Young People
The Children and Young People (Oversight and Advocacy Bodies) Act 2016 (OAB Act) creates a legislative framework for the rights, development and wellbeing of children and young people in South Australia.
The primary function of the new Child Development Council, one of 4 oversight and advocacy bodies established by the OAB Act, is to prepare and maintain an Outcomes Framework for Children and Young People that must include a Charter for Children and Young People.
The Charter represents a shared commitment to promote the wellbeing of South Australia’s children and young people. It sets out the conditions that allow every child and young person to thrive.
The Charter is being developed in the context of the objectives of the OAB Act and the 5 dimensions of the Outcomes Framework.
