co-design process with ACT stakeholders to inform. The co-design process included participation from the Our Booris, Our Way Implementation Oversight Committee, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elected Body, Aboriginal community-controlled organisations, the Human Rights Commission, and government stakeholders. The process aimed to develop and refine the proposed Commissioner’s scope, functions, governance arrangements and recruitment process.

The Government has received the final report on the co-design process prepared by the Jumbunna Institute and is currently considering it. We will release that report and the Government’s response shortly to provide further information to the community about the next steps for this reform. Necessarily, the date by which an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Commissioner is expected to be in place depends on the progress of the reform process.

5. As indicated in response to question 4, the co-design process has now concluded and the Jumbunna Institute have now provided their final co-design report containing its recommended model for the establishment of the Commissioner’s office. The Government intends to release its response to the report, in the coming months.
