Review of the Family Law System

“YACSA believes that all young people have a fundamental right to participate in and contribute to all aspects of community life and the decisions that affect them. The Family Law Act will play an important role in providing the guidance and balance necessary to protect children and young people from further harm while enabling their right to participate in the decisions made by the Family Court.”

“Meaningful participation can only occur when young people are valued, are informed about their involvement, consider their involvement relevant and beneficial, are appropriately supported and resourced to participate, and have ownership of the experience.”
