National Framework for Protecting Australia’s Children 2009-2020

CYDA policy submission.

Children and Young People with Disability Australia (CYDA) is pleased to see that one of the proposed guiding principles for the successor plan is to “listen and respond to the voice of children and young people and the voice of those who care for them” and to ensure their participation in decision-making.

Children and young people being front and centre in the decisions that affect them is a key priority for CYDA, and is built into our strategic plan. Our ideal future is one in which children and young people are recognised as the agents and experts in their life, making informed decisions as they grow; are included in ways that are meaningful to them; and have their human rights upheld.
