Keeping our children and young people safe: National survey on understanding and experiences of consent

National Children’s Commissioner Anne Hollonds and Sex Discrimination Commissioner Kate Jenkins will undertake a national survey exploring consent education of secondary school students across Australia.

The survey will collect information about the extent of secondary students’ consent education and the understanding, experience, nature and reporting of sexual harassment among these students.

Teach Us Consent founder Chanel Contos, whose committed advocacy has helped put the issue of consent education in schools on the national agenda, will be a Special Advisor to the project.

The findings will be reported to government and the public, including to children and young people.
