The Importance of Child Safe Organisations

Every organisation has a responsibility to keep children and young people safe.

Children’s Week is not only a time to celebrate children but also exists to remind us of our responsibility to advocate for children as citizens and their right to a positive childhood.

Western Australian organisations engaged in child-related work can take on this responsibility and lead child safe workplaces and cultures by implementing the National Principles for Child Safe Organisations.

The National Principles outline consistent behaviours and practices organisations should adopt to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the children and young people they interact with.

How do you know your organisation is child safe?
