The objects proposed for the new Bill

A Bill needs to contain objects that identify what the legislation could achieve.

The first step in identifying objects is to establish some agreed definitions for terms that would appear throughout the Bill.

For this proposed Bill, which has a focus on early intervention and prevention, it is important to define concepts such as rights, development, wellbeing, early intervention, prevention, parents, and family.

The definitions and objects factsheet defines these key terms and presents the proposed objects that have been developed for the new Bill.

As you review the information, consider how you might respond to the following questions:

  • Of the objects proposed for the new draft Bill, what are the top 3 that you consider most important?
  • Are there any objects that you feel are missing, out of place, or need revision?

Provide your feedback on the proposed objectives.
