COVID-19: please help the Commission check in with children and young people

We heard directly from hundreds of children and young people last year about the effects of COVID-19 on their mental health, education, safety and sense of certainty about the future; we know the pandemic has already had a massive impact on young people in our community.

With Victoria currently experiencing increased community transmission and a fresh lockdown, we want to make sure we hear from children and young people about how they are feeling, and what suggestions they have about the future. Hearing from children and young people means we can advocate about the issues affecting them and share their perspectives with government and other decision-makers.
