Image showing the diversity of Partner Network participants
In NSW, a lead group of First Nations, legal, human rights and civil society organisations have come together with community services, charities, peak bodies, and unions to call on the NSW Government to raise the age of criminal responsibility to at least 14.

Together we understand the issues and can build a better way for kids and communities.
