MaintenanceIn the lead-up to the 2019 state election, the department’s website and other channels will operate in line with the caretaker conventions. This means there will be limited updates from 1 March 2019 until the election is finalised.

NSW caretaker period has commenced.

The caretaker period for the NSW Election commenced on 1 March 2019. Accordingly, no ministerial press releases or related information issued by the Government from 1 March 2019 will be available on this website.

For copies of recently issued ministerial press releases or information on the election policies of any political party, go to the website of the relevant political party.

Staff recruitment and management

A child safe organisation has policy and procedures for recruiting, supervising, training and managing staff for staff performance appraisal and feedback processes

Each process should be considered separately in order to minimise risks at each stage and to provide a safe environment for children and young people.

Organisations that employ people who are committed to safe environments for children and young people are better able to provide a high quality and effective service. Adults who work with children and young people have a responsibility to promote their wellbeing and protect them from harm. They also have an opportunity to make a positive contribution to the child and/or young person’s life. It is important that the people who work in your organisation share the organisation’s values and promote the wellbeing of children and young people.
