ACT Government Panel Position: Support Canberra’s at-risk children

The minimum age of criminal responsibility will be raised in the ACT this year. To support at-risk children and young people who will no longer go through the criminal justice system, the ACT Government is establishing the Therapeutic Support Panel.

Panel members will facilitate therapeutic support for children and young people who previously would have gone through the criminal justice system. 

We need passionate professionals to join the panel, with qualifications and expertise in areas like criminology, psychology, education, mental health and social work. There is a full time Chair position available as well as 10 to 12 panel members.

If this sounds like you, apply by 5 pm Monday 6 November. You don’t need to be Canberra-based to take part.
