The Child Safety Toolkit has been created to promote child safety, preventing child abuse and helping organisations comply with the complex web of legislation in this area.
The toolkit is designed to be read by school council members, principals and senior teachers, as well as board/committee members and senior managers of any not-for-profit organisation that works with children, though anyone can and should take it upon themselves to ensure every organisation is acting in the best interest of children in our community.
There’s so much at stake when organisations get it wrong. Conversely, those that face the issue head on with tenacity, courage and wisdom have an invaluable opportunity to prevent abuse and contribute to the healing of those who have suffered.
We call on you to read the Child Safety Toolkit, to distribute it widely, to act on its advice. Together we can ensure the provision of safe spaces for children and stamp out child abuse in Australia.
