Working with Children Amendment Bill 2016

This Bill seeks to amend the Working with Children Act 2005 (Vic) (“the Act”). We recognise that the amendments in this Bill arise in part out of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, and that the protection of children is paramount in consideration of the implementation of this Bill. However, it is our view that the Bill goes beyond the limits of what is reasonable and practicable in balancing the interests of children with the rights of people to be involved in the lives of children.
