Child safe policy
A child safe policy describes an organisation´s commitment to safeguard children from harm.
A child safe policy
- Helps to create and promote a safe and positive environment for children
- Demonstrates that the organisation is taking its duty of care seriously
- Provides the foundation for procedures and decision-making about an organisation's interactions and involvement with children.
Some organisations, for example childcare services, are required by law to have a child safe policy.
