New Child Safety Standards Introduced in Victoria


It was great to see the new child safety standards introduced in Victoria this past Thursday (September 1st). The primary focus is on the government schooling system to increase awareness and protections.

Secretary Gill Callister stated “In response to the Betrayal of Trust Parliamentary Enquiry, the Victorian Government has introduced Child Safe Standards across all organisations in the community where children spend time” she continued “I do believe by implementing these standards across our education system, we have an opportunity to show great leadership on the safety and protection of children.”
