New Children’s Guardian Act

The Children’s Guardian Act is commencing 1 March 2020 and brings together existing legislation under one Act. It also enables the Reportable Conduct Scheme to move from the NSW Ombudsman to the Office of the Children’s Guardian (OCG).

18 February 2020

The new Act will enable the OCG to be more independent and responsive. Some legislative changes have also been made to the Reportable Conduct Scheme's functions which will affect employers' reportable conduct compliance obligations.

The OCG is holding free information sessions from March 2020 about the changes and how these will affect child-related organisations.
