What’s this about?

The Bill seeks to implement the vision of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse to make organisations safer for children. The royal commission recommended that child-related organisations be required to implement Child Safe Standards and be held accountable for their implementation through independent oversight.

Extensive consultations were conducted with government and non-government stakeholders throughout 2019 and 2020 on a regulatory scheme for the Child Safe Standards. The consultation report summarises the key components proposed for the scheme based on our consultation.

The Bill largely reflects what stakeholders wanted to see in a Child Safe Scheme.
