How individuals and organisations can make a submission

The Commission welcomes interested stakeholders, including individuals and organisations who support children and young people living in out-of-home care to make a submission. This is an opportunity for you to share with the Commission how these young people are supported to stay engaged in school, existing barriers that prevent them from doing well in school and receiving supports, and areas for improvement. The closing date for submissions is 29 July 2022.

Individuals and organisations can make a written submission, audio or video recording. Please email it to If you have any questions or would like to speak to someone at the Commission, please contact our Senior Engagement Officer, Jason Mannes, on 0438 351 889 or

The Commission might use your submission in the report, although if you are an individual, it will be anonymous, and your name will not be used. Organisation names will be referred to in the report, unless requested otherwise. Submissions can be treated confidentially if requested.
