Office of Children's Commissioner seeks evidence from those affected by family migration rules

Maggie Atkinson raises concerns about new family migration rules

The Office of the Children’s Commissioner (OCC) is undertaking a new study looking at the impact the new family migration rules have on children and young people. The Children's Commissioner Maggie Atkinson has previously raised concerns about the rules and spoke at a number of events organised by the campaign.

The information that the OCC collects from families affected by the rules via the questionnaire will form part of the final report. It will also inform the recommendations that the OCC will make to the Government within the report.

All families within which children and young people have been affected by the new family migration rules are strongly encouraged to respond by completing the questionnaire below, in order to help the OCC inquiry.

The questionnaire, and details of how to submit evidence, can be downloaded below. All completed questionnaires should be returned to the OCC by 9.00am on Monday 1 September 2014.
