Child Safe Standards Resources

Victoria has introduced compulsory minimum standards for organisations that provide services for children to help protect children from abuse. The child safe standards will apply to organisations from 1 January 2016. Education, awareness raising and helping organisations to create and maintain child safe environments will be the initial focus of the child safe standards.

The Victorian government has released a toolkit for organisations, which includes guidance on human resources, good leadership and what to do if a child discloses abuse. They can be downloaded below:
