Individual inquiries

We can conduct inquiries about the safety and wellbeing of an individual or a group of vulnerable children and young people.

About these inquiries 

We can conduct inquiries about the safety or wellbeing of an individual or a group of vulnerable children or young people.

The inquiry must be about services provided, or not provided, to the vulnerable child or young person. 

These inquiries are described in section 37 of the Commission for Children and Young People Act.

Reporting 

These inquiry reports are provided to the Minister for Families and Children, the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services, and any other relevant Ministers.

They are not public documents but we may sometimes publish de-identified summaries of these inquiries in our annual reports.
