The Child Protection Panel has been established to provide independent advice on child protection in immigration detention and regional processing centres (RPCs). The establishment of the Panel is partly in response to the recent Moss Review into allegations at the Nauru Regional Processing Centre. The purpose of this Panel is to ensure that a comprehensive and contemporary framework for the Department relating to the protection of children is in place. This will be done by assessing the adequacy of Departmental and service provider policy and practice around the management of incidents of abuse, neglect or exploitation involving children. Based on this assessment, the Panel will provide recommendations for ongoing improvement.
