Provision of information to care leavers

Section 153 of the Children and Young People (Safety) Act 2017 implements a recommendation of the Child Protection Systems Royal Commission report ‘The Life They Deserve’ enabling care leavers to access, free of charge, original and copy documents relating to them, instead of having to apply to apply for access under the Freedom of Information Act 1991.

For information on how to apply for access to departmental records, see Provision of information to care leavers.

If you would like support in accessing your records you can contact Elm Place on 1800 188 118 or via email: elmplace@rasa.org.au
