  1. Examine the operation and effectiveness of the Act
  2. Report on the extent to which the purpose of the Act, including the advocacy, promotion and monitoring of the wellbeing of children and young people, is being achieved (specifically but not limited to section 19 of the Act)
  3. Examine what amendments to the Act are necessary to enable the Commissioner for Children and Young People to operate as a ‘one stop shop’ for any complaint concerning child abuse regardless of the public sector agency that the matter relates to, as per recommendation 2 of the Inquiry into St Andrew’s Hostel
  4. Examine what amendments to the Act are necessary to facilitate recommended changes resulting from the review of the Working with Children (Criminal Record Checking) Act 2004 and any other relevant recommendations from legislative reviews or reports.

The report is currently under consideration by the Attorney General.
