Charter of Rights of Parents with Disability in their interactions with Child Protection System

The Charter was released in February this year and aims to improve outcomes for parents and carers with disabilities who come into contact with Child Protection in Victoria. The Charter recognises that parents and carers have the right to a relationship with their children.

The panel will discuss the principles and design of the Charter and how it works operationally. Is it effective as an advocacy tool? Does it uphold the rights of parents with disability when they come into contact with the child protection system? How does it ensure the safety of the child?

The panelists include:

  • Miranda Bain, Funds In Court Human Rights Advisory Committee Deputy Chair
  • Susan Arthur, Positive Powerful Parents, Self Advocacy Group for parents with intellectual disability
  • Frederikke Jensen, Advocacy Manager, VALID
  • Briony Long, Advocacy Officer, STAR Vic (TBC)

This webinar is part of the ‘Advancing your advocacy Practice’ series.

Auslan interpreters and captioning service is available at this event.
