The Commission for Children and Young People asked Starship to develop a new brand for them that reflected their newly conveyed powers. Part of the scope was to create a brand icon, internal stationery and give a looks-like feels-like home page for a re-skin.
About the Commission
Created in 2012 by the Minister for Community Services the Hon Mary Wooldridge MP, the Commission:
The Commission for Children and Young People Act 2012 provides for the role of the Commission.
The Commission commenced operation on 1 March 2013 as an agency independent of government able to table its annual report in Parliament along with the outcomes of any systemic reviews initiated by the Commission.
The Commission is led by the Principal Commissioner and the Commissioner for Aboriginal Children and Young People.
While the Commission replaces the Office of the Child Safety Commissioner (OCSC) some features will be retained. These include:
a strong voice for promoting the safety and wellbeing of children
monitoring out of home care services
annual review of the Working with Children Act 2005
undertaking inquiries into the deaths of children known to child protection.
The Commission brings together 30 experienced and committed full time and part time staff, who aim to be at the forefront of activity to improve the lives of Victoria’s children and young people. We are always keen to identify the views of children and young people, parents, carers, professionals and the broader community, through consultation at events, forums and workshops.
