On the 1st of July, the new Child Safe Standards are put into effect across the state of Victoria.
The Child Safe Standards commenced in 2016 and after 5 years, we have seen how the stands improve the safety for our children and young people.
These new changes are being made to make the Standards even stronger.
The eleven new Standards will replace Victoria’s current seven standards and principles.
Key changes include new requirements:
- to involve families and communities in organisations’ efforts to keep children and young people safe
- for a greater focus on safety for Aboriginal children and young people
- to manage the risk of child abuse in online environments
- for greater clarity on the governance, systems and processes to keep children and young people safe.
