The Online Safety Youth Advisory Council

eSafety has appointed 25 young people from across Australia to our first Online Safety Youth Advisory Council – an opportunity for young people to provide a voice to government about their online experiences and how these can be safe and positive.

Our first Council meeting took place on June 22, 2022.

The 25 members of the Council are aged from 13 to 24 and are from a diverse range of experiences, genders, cultural and linguistic backgrounds, and locations.

Members will provide advice to the government about their experiences online, and help inform eSafety’s policies and programs. Staff from eSafety will be with them throughout the journey to provide support and guidance. We are excited to share the contributions of the young people who make up our Council.

Why is your voice important to us? 

There are many ways that young people can lead and influence change, but we appreciate the strength in difference and diversity.

The voice of young people is very important because it can help us get an authentic perspective of the issues that they face online. The Council will report to government on action that can be taken by all players, including eSafety and industry.
