Report concerns

You can provide information in this Youth ConCERN form if you have a concern about your care or treatment within Defence or a Defence youth program.

When completing this form please provide as much information as possible and include your name and preferred contact details so we can contact you to discuss your concern.

Please use this form after you have explored local avenues. For example, we recommend trying to resolve your concern with your local Commander or Supervisor or someone you trust within your youth program/work area first. If that isn’t an appropriate option, or you have already reported your complaint to your local Commander or Supervisor and would like to make a confidential complaint through another mechanism, please complete this form.

A parent, guardian or other adult may submit this form on behalf of a person under 18.

The information you provide is treated confidentially and will only be disclosed to relevant personnel in order to achieve the best outcome for you. Please be aware that if it is essential for your protection, Defence may be required to share information about your complaint with others (e.g. informing the police if a crime is suspected to have occurred).
