ChildSafe Australia – Road Show

Local Information Sessions

In response to the Royal Commission Enquiry into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, ChildSafe Limited is offering low cost information sessions for community leaders and volunteers in organisational safety. The Australian community is increasingly calling for community organisations to demonstrate that they are safe places for our children to thrive – and in light of the report, the Australian Government is making moves to increase the requirements for organisations by setting National Standards for Child Safety.

This information session will cover:

  • A brief understanding of the Royal Commission report and recommendations that have been made in December 2017 that will impact community organisations.
  • An overview of the new 10 National Standards for Child Safe Organisations.

Each event will have presentation and representation from:

  • a leading Law Firm sharing the major legal requirements for Organisations in child safety
  • the Insurance sector to cover insurance requirements for organisations working with children
  • the ChildSafe team.

The sessions will also provide an open Q&A session with the panel, taking questions from the floor.

ChildSafe Limited is a not for profit, children’s harm prevention charity, and has over 10 years experience providing practical tools and training to help community organisations transition from policy to good practice. We promote researched standards for the well-being of children, and help organisations keep the children they care for safe.

Please join us at the National roadshow of information sessions as we partner in this challenge to “Make Australia ChildSafe”. At a time when community organisations have been shamed for failing in their duty of care, ChildSafe is here to help to promote child well-being and safety from harm, and respond to the needs of organisations to help them sustain this safety effort.

Who is this session for?

  • Volunteers and staff who work with children in any roles, such as sporting coaches, youth group and children’s program leaders such as scouts, girl guides, church and other community organisations
  • Leaders in organisations, responsible for Child Protection Policy and governance
  • Community services workers who have responsibility for children, and work in institutions responding to children with histories of harm such as Foster Care, hospitals, mental health services and other allied health professionals
  • Parents, caregivers and anyone with an interest in the outcomes of the Royal Commission Enquiry into Institutional responses to Child Sexual Abuse
