UNICEF Australia works with decision makers and government at all levels in order to bring about the changes needed to help realise the rights of children in Australia. Direct political advocacy is a key part of how we work in Australia, and around the world. We work cooperatively with governments to build their political support and their capacity to create policies and provide services that best protect the rights of children and young people.
UNICEF Australia works with the Australian Parliament to protect and promote the exercise and experience of children’s rights. UNICEF Australia has made submissions to Parliamentary Committees and appeared before them on issues relating to child rights issues in Australia.
