Regulating Child Safe Organisations
What's this about?
In June 2018, the NSW Government accepted the recommendation of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse to regulate child safe standards in NSW.
The Royal Commission developed the child safe standards based on evidence about what makes organisations child safe. The aim of the child safe standards is to achieve and maintain a genuine commitment to child safe culture and practice through incremental and continuous improvement over time.
The Office of the Children's Guardian is seeking your feedback on their discussion paper, which proposes changes that would make it compulsory for many organisations in NSW to meet the child safe standards. Many organisations already work in ways that are consistent with standards, but making the standards mandatory sends a strong message about the importance of child safety.
The Office of the Children's Guardian will use your feedback to design an approach that responds to the recommendations of the Royal Commission and is appropriate for NSW.
