Children are precious and ought to be cared for properly by the different organisations they come into contact with throughout their lives. For an organisation to be truly “child safe”, it must have a planned and intentional approach to safety.

This must include good practices around appointment of staff and volunteers, training of those people, and measures to keep programs and the physical location of activities safe for children and vulnerable people.

That’s why at ChildSafe, we use the phrase, “Safe People – Safe Programs – Safe Places”. Children need the organisations they come into contact with to manage all three.
