The community legal sector published a report calling for a dedicated Commissioner for Aboriginal Children and Young People in WA last week in response to the disproportionate levels of disadvantage Aboriginal people have experienced in the state. Led by the Aboriginal Family Legal Service WA (AFLS), the report includes contributions from the state peak – Community Legal WA, Circle Green and 12 other community legal centres. It calls on the State Government to urgently create a separate, independent statutory position dedicated to advocating for Aboriginal children and young people. AFLS CEO Corina Martin said the complex and systemic nature of the issues affecting Aboriginal children and young people across the state merited establishing such a role. Ms. Martin urged the State Government to follow the lead of South Australia, Victoria, the Australian Capital Territory, Queensland and New South Wales in establishing a dedicated Aboriginal Children’s Commissioner.
