Care and Protection of Children is the area of law that focuses on child safety and protection from child abuse and neglect. It is governed by the child protection legislation namely The Children and Young Persons (Care and Protection) Act 1998 (NSW). This area of law involves the Department of Family and Community Services and is heard in The Children’s Court of NSW.
Decisions regarding a child’s health, schooling, welfare and upbringing are generally made by the parents; however when a family cannot provide adequate care and protection for their children the State can intervene to seek parental responsibility for the children.
