The Commissioner for Aboriginal Children and Young People is the only independent body created solely to promote the rights, development and wellbeing of Aboriginal children and young people, at a systemic level, and works alongside other independent oversight and advocacy bodies such as  the Commissioner for Children and Young People and the Guardian for Children and Young People.

The Commissioner for Aboriginal Children and Young People is empowered to undertake a range of functions related to Aboriginal children and young people’s rights, development and wellbeing. These include developing culturally safe and informed strategies and promoting Aboriginal voice with regard for the safety and wellbeing of all Aboriginal children and young people.

Be Seen. Be Heard. Flourish.

The artwork by Jordan Lovegrove, a young Ngarrindjeri man, was created for April Lawrie, Commissioner for Aboriginal Children and Young People which lays the foundation of the Commissioner’s work with the artwork symbolising the importance of having both culture and identity alongside safety and wellbeing to ensure Aboriginal children and young people can reach their full potential.

Acknowledgement of Country

We would like to acknowledge the Kaurna people as the Traditional Owners of the lands and waters of the Adelaide region on which the office of South Australia’s Commissioner for Aboriginal Children and Young People is located.

We also acknowledge all other Traditional Owners throughout South Australia for who the Commissioner seeks to serve the best interests of their Aboriginal children and young people. In doing so, we pay respect Elders and families, both past and present, and pay reverence to today’s Aboriginal children and young people as they emerge as our future leaders.
