NSW Trustee & Guardian has a number of policies that may impact on members of the public.
The following is a list of current key policies that are open access:
Section 6(5) of the Government Information Public Access Act 2009 requires that agencies must keep a record of any open access information that they do not make publicly available on the basis of an overriding public interest against disclosure.
At this stage there is no record. However, if we make a decision not to disclose open access information due to an overriding public interest, we will publish a record on our website detailing the information not released, and the reasons behind the decision.
For further information on our policies contact the NSW Trustee & Guardian Information Officer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
