The risk of child abuse is present in any organisation that provides services to children. The Child Safe Standards were recommended by the Royal Commission into Institutional Child Sexual Abuse to reduce the risk of abuse and harm to children in organisations. The Child Safe Standards have been designed so they can be applied flexibly applied across all organisational settings to improve the safety of children.
The risk of child abuse in organisations is determined by a number of factors such as the nature of the service, the age of the children accessing the service and the culture of the organisation.
This webinar will:
- discuss the risk of abuse and harm to children in centre based services
- discuss how to apply the standards to reduce this risk using a case study
- prompt services to review their unique risks and reflect on how they can apply the standards
Please read the case study that will be emailed to you a few days before the webinar. This will be used during the webinar.
The final module of the Child Safe Standards Series after this webinar is the Panel Discussion on 24 September. The panel discussion will explore current best practice, gaps in organisational child safety and challenges in applying the standards.
Please note, there is no certificate for this webinar and is not associated with NESA professional development.
