New Child Safe Standards are here!

The Victorian Government announced that a set of new Child Safe Standards (The Standards) commenced on 1 July 2022. The eleven new standards replaced Victoria’s previous seven standards and principles. These changes were made to support greater national consistency, reflecting the National Principles for a Child Safe Organisation. This is to ensure that the Standards within Victoria are even stronger and enable greater protection for children and young people.

The Standards detail how your organisation will protect children from abuse through policies and procedures, and develop a culture of child safety, including the safety of children with a disability, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and children from CALD backgrounds.
