ChildSafe SP3 is a Safety System built on the idea that no-one is accountable to themselves when it comes to safety management around children and vulnerable people.
The decision to adopt the ChildSafe SP3 system will be made by those in leadership, but it is necessary for an organisation to work at developing a culture of safety practice like that set out in ChildSafe SP3, so it becomes normal behaviour at ALL levels of the organisation.
Promoting safety in programs delivered to children and vulnerable people
Enabling community organisations in a culture of wellbeing for children and vulnerable people
Effective support staff funded by subscriptions
Effective community education and development services
Delivering quality ChildSafe materials and services
The Royal Commission hands down its long-awaited report.
The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse was established in response to allegations of sexual abuse of children in institutional contexts that had been emerging in Australia for many years.
Over 16,000 individuals have contacted the Royal Commission and by the time it concluded it heard more than 8,000 personal stories in private sessions. Over 1,000 survivors have provided a written account of their experience.
They are rightly lead agents for change, after many decades of society’s institutional failures to children. We must now resolve to do what we can to protect them, and future generations.
