Standing up for children
It's World Children's Day, yet in Australia's criminal justice system they are still being silenced and denied their rights.

Restraint of the aged
Regulating physical restraint of the elderly in nursing homes is a step in the right direction, but more still needs to be done to educate the sector on alternatives.
