Your right to information
On 1 July 2010 new right to information legislation came into effect, extending and replacing the former Freedom of Information (FOI) law.
The new law:
- creates new rights to information that are designed to meet community expectations of more open and transparent government
- encourages government agencies to proactively release government information
You can find out more about your right to information and new ways to access NSW government information on the Office of the Information Commissioner (OIC) website at www.oic.nsw.gov.au.
Accessing our agency�s information
The Commission for Children and Young People, as part of Communities NSW, publishes a range of information under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009. Follow the links on our website to find out more about our work, policies and publications. For more information about the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 visit www.communities.nsw.gov.au/gipainfo.
A disclosure log is a record of information that the Commission has released, often in response to a specific request from an individual or organisation, that the Commission thinks could also be of interest to other members of the public.
To date, all access applications received by the Commission under the Government Information (Public Access) Act 2009 has involved the release of personal information and is not available for access by other members of the public.
This page will be continuously updated as additional information is released under the GIPA Act.
