Notifications to the Office of the Children’s Guardian
Allegations of sexual misconduct or serious physical assault against a child or young person
The Children’s Guardian Act 2019 commenced 1 March 2020, bringing together existing legislation under one Act, and expanding and strengthening the NSW Reportable Conduct Scheme.
As a result of these changes, designated agencies are no longer required to notify the Accreditation and Monitoring Team of allegations of sexual misconduct or serious physical assault against a child or young person in statutory out-of-home care. These allegations must be reported to the Reportable Conduct Team.
If you have any questions about changes to the Reportable Conduct Scheme, please contact us on (02) 8219 3800 or firstname.lastname@example.org
More information about changes to the Reportable Conduct Scheme including fact sheets and FAQs are available at www.kidsguardian.nsw.gov.au/reportableconduct
