Practice and Procedure
This resource sheet provides a brief overview of child protection legislation across state and territory jurisdictions in Australia. Child protection is an area of public law where authorities may intervene in family settings because of an allegation of harm or significant risk of harm to a child Titterton, In Australia, state and territory governments are responsible for the administration and operation of child protection services.
Legislative acts in each state and territory govern the way such services are provided. The main child protection acts in each Australian state and territory are listed in Table 1. The table also outlines other acts of Parliament that are relevant to the operation and delivery of various services to children and families across Australia.
For an overview of these acts, grouped by topic, see the Appendices. Australian Capital Territory. New South Wales. Northern Territory.
South Australia. Children, Youth and Families Act Vic. Western Australia. This act contains the functions of the Human Rights Commission relating to the convention. The convention can be accessed online.
Human rights guidance for child protection is also applied in some state and territory legislation, including:. Together with policy frameworks, which show the nature and extent of services and interventions to be provided, legislative principles reflect the service goals governments aspire to.
However, legislation across all states and territories has similar guiding principles in several key areas. These principles include:. An overview of these three guiding principles in state and territory legislation is provided below. Provisions for out-of-home care and culturally appropriate child protection responses for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people also guide state and territory legislation, and are summarised below. Legislation in all jurisdictions identifies the best interests of the child as the primary principle.
Each jurisdiction has policy provisions to guide decision making in line with this principle. While all jurisdictions identify the use of early intervention services to prevent entry or re-entry into the statutory system, delivery of these services varies.
For example, how much non-government service providers are involved in, or responsible for, the delivery of services and their funding. Legislation in all Australian jurisdictions supports involving children and young people in decision making to the extent that their age and maturity allows.
This includes consulting with and seeking the views of children on issues affecting their lives. Out-of-home care is the extreme end of statutory child protection. Other protective options are typically exhausted before alternative care arrangements are made for children seen to be at risk of maltreatment. Although there are provisions for children to be placed in out-of-home care voluntarily by parents e. There are specific provisions for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, young people and their families for those going into out-of-home care.
After-care support is based on the understanding that young people will continue to need support after leaving out-of-home care, as they make the transition to independence. Legislative provisions for after-care support are detailed in all jurisdictions in Australia; however, variations exist in the ages at which young people are eligible to receive after-care support from child protection departments.
For example, in Victoria and Queensland legislation provides for after-care support for young people up to 21 years of age. Although the Australian Capital Territory and Tasmania have provisions for after-care support, no age limit is stated. Permanency planning is a relatively recent area of development in Australian child protection, and is now a major consideration in providing future stability for children in out-of-home care.
Permanency planning is the process of developing long-term care arrangements for children when there is no possibility for them to be safely reunited with their families AIHW, As a recent development, not all jurisdictions have implemented legislative provisions around this type of service planning and delivery. Nonetheless, in jurisdictions without specific mention of permanency planning in legislation, policy frameworks often provide guidance in this area.
The National Framework and associated documents can be accessed online. While child protection legislation is the jurisdiction of state and territory governments, the National Framework is a cooperative document that aims to provide a shared, national agenda for change in the way Australia manages child protection issues. The framework seeks to resolve the differences that exist across state and territory jurisdictions, some of which are outlined above.
While there has been no nationally consistent legislation implemented at the state or territory level, there is work at a policy and practice level to address these discrepancies. For example, uniformity across the ways in which Working with Children Checks are carried out is a priority of the National Framework.
At a policy level, National Standards for out-of-home care have been implemented that influence policy and practice, although this is not currently represented in the legislation. Legislation on police powers and responsibilities relates to child protection in matters including sexual abuse, female genital mutilation of girls and young women, and the abduction of a child.
It specifies the extent of police powers under separate acts related to child protection, particularly with child abuse and neglect.
Acts about police powers and responsibilities do not specify provisions for child protection. However, reports regarding child abuse and neglect can be made to the police. Police Powers and Responsibilities Act Qld relates to child protection in the following sections: s. However, reports regarding child abuse and neglect can be made to police. Police Offences Act Tas. Victoria Police Act Vic. Police Act WA does not specify any provisions related to child protection. However, reports regarding child abuse and neglect can be made to police child abuse squad.
Legislation on youth justice guides criminal justice proceedings for children and young people. Most states and territories have dedicated youth justice acts, except for the Australian Capital Territory, which has made provisions for youth justice matters in the Children and Young People Act ACT.
Legislation about sex offender registration and reporting requires certain individuals who have committed sexual offences to notify police of their personal details, such as home address and employment. This is to prevent registrable offenders from causing harm or risk of harm to children. Legislation on working with children ensures that adults who work with, or care for, children are subject to screening processes to protect children from physical and sexual harms.
All states and territories have made legal provisions for adults working with children. Legislation on family services and child care services includes provisions for the licensing of, and placement of children in, out-of-home care facilities and support services for children.
All states and territories have made legal provisions for family services and child care services in Australia. All states and territories have legislation on child protection matters in family and domestic violence.
Most states and territories rely on Commonwealth regulations on child protection in international contexts and intercountry adoption. However, New South Wales, Queensland and Tasmania have developed their own dedicated legislation on child protection in international contexts. Australia has been party to this convention since These regulations include:. All states and territories have dedicated legislation about adoption. With the exception of the Northern Territory, all states and the Australian Capital Territory have made legal provisions to allow for the adoption of children by same-sex couples.
The Adoption and Other Legislation Amendment Bill allows for the adoption of children by same-sex couples. The Adoption Act Tas. Note: a The Northern Territory does not currently allow the adoption of children by same-sex couples. State- and territory-appointed commissioners also review laws and policies that affect children, working to protect children from harm or risk of harm, within an independent statutory body.
State and territory legislation restricts the types of work a child can undertake and the conditions regulating that work. While only New South Wales, Queensland and Victoria have dedicated child employment laws, provisions for child employment are found in all states and territories Workplace OHS, Education Act SA governs the age at which a child attends compulsory schooling, and stipulates that children cannot be employed during school hours.
