Child Protection Laws NSW


Several CLCs made submission to a government discussion paper on a new child protection scheme in 2013.

The CLCNSW Care and Protection Network and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Rights Working Group wrote an open letter to the Minister outlining our concerns with proposed new child protection legislation in NSW.

25 organisations signed on to the letter. A CLCNSW issues paper was produced once the legislation was released and both documents were sent to the media and NSW MPs.

None of the amendments CLCs suggested to MPs progressed but some commitments were made to MPs by the Minster about the concerns CLCs had raised. The law reform work presented an opportunity for CLCs to start developing relationships with a range of MPs.
