The Charter of the South Pacific Council of Youth and Childrens' Courts (SPCYCC), in brief, is to support the development of youth justice and child protection systems and the maintenance of the rule of law in the region.
Currently, member jurisdictions are the relevant courts of all Australian States and Territories, NZ, PNG, Fiji, the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Samoa and Kiribati.
Membership of the Council is confined to heads of jurisdiction (or other appropriate judicial officers) of youth and children's courts in the South Pacific. The Council meets annually.
The Council is supported in its activities by UNICEF, AusAid, NZ Aid and the Pacific Islands Forum.
