Youth Law Australia

Jul 21, 2021 | Advocacy, Electorate

This week Rod had a zoom meeting with Tiffany Overall from Youth Law Australia to discuss the upcoming Children, Youth & Families (Raise the Age) Amendment Bill 2021.

This bill looks to raise the age of criminal responsibility from 10 to 14 years.

Youth Law Australia is a community legal service that is dedicated to helping children and young people in Australia and their supporters to find a legal solution to their problems. They provide free, confidential legal information & help for young people under 25.

They also do a lot of important work addressing the human rights abuses of children and young people in Australia.

We had some interesting discussions about how we can best support young people and prevent reoffending as well as what our justice system should look like.
