NSW Advocate for Children and Young People, Zoe Robinson, has praised the “great work” of the NSW government in listening to the needs of young people amid new ‘friends bubble’ measures.

“I want to acknowledge some of the great work that’s going on and especially the announcement today around this friends bubble,” Ms Robinson said on Tuesday during a media conference.

“That is as a direct result of what children and young people have been saying, that they want to be able to see their friends. They want to be able to do it safely.”

She said due to the new arrangement, children have the “opportunity to connect to care for each other, to see each other in ways they’ve been unable to do”.

“I really want to acknowledge New South Wales Health, the Minister for Education for this work and the Premier for listening to children and young people at this time.”
