Women's Safety and Justice Taskforce submission paper 3
We are pleased to provide a submission regarding third discussion paper of the Women’s Safety and Justice Taskforce (the Taskforce): Women’s and girls’ experience across the criminal justice system as victim-survivors of sexual violence and also as accused persons and offenders (the Discussion Paper).
The QFCC is a statutory body of the Queensland Government responsible for promoting the safety, wellbeing and best interests of children and young people. This includes advocating for the voices of children to be heard and their views to be taken into consideration in all decisions affecting them.
As children and young people are an invaluable source of information on the issues that impact them, the QFCC has spoken with members of our Youth Advisory Council about specific issues raised in the Discussion Paper and included their experiences and perspectives in this response.
