Welcome to the Children's Court Clinic
The Children and Young Persons (Care and Protection) Act 1998 recognises that caring for children and young people is a responsibility shared by families, agencies and communities working in partnership. It also places greater emphasis on government departments working cooperatively to provide services to meet the needs of children and families.

The Children's Court Clinic is established under section 15B of the Children’s Court Act 1987. Pursuant to its function under sections 52-59 of the Children and Young Persons (Care and Protection) Act 1998 the clinic assists the Children’s Court and higher courts in care and protection matters, by providing independent expert clinical assessments of:

    • children and young persons, and/ or
    • the capacity of parents and others to carry out parental responsibility.

An assessment report by the clinic is taken to be an independent report to the court rather than evidence tendered by a party (section 59, the Care Act). The Children’s Court Clinic Authorised Clinician who prepares a report is nevertheless available to the court for cross-examination.

The Children's Court Clinic is part of the Sydney Children's Hospitals Network.
