Detention of Children in the Northern Territory

 Voices: Suggestions for the Future – What Children, Communities and Experts have told us

6 November 2017

The Royal Commission into the Protection and Detention of Children in the Northern Territory has today published Voices: Suggestions for the Future – What Children, Communities and Experts have told us.

It has been important to the Commission to understand what children, professionals, community organisations, government, families and communities believe the right direction for children in protection and detention in the Northern Territory might be.

Asking how we can do things differently has resulted in a wide range of views and opinions on the child protection and detention systems in the Northern Territory.

Voices: Suggestions for the Future – What Children, Communities and Experts have told us sets out some of the ideas and opinions we have heard regarding ways in which the child protection and detention systems can be improved in the Northern Territory.

Voices: Suggestions for the Future – What Children, Communities and Experts have told us can be found on the Royal Commission website.

It is important to note that these are the ideas and suggestions of others and they are not the recommendations of the Royal Commission. The Commission does not comment here on these ideas and opinions. To protect the identity of vulnerable witnesses they have been given a pseudonym and identifying material has been removed.
