Child Safe Standards Coming Soon

The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse recommended 10 child safe standards, drawing on its findings, research and consultation about what makes organisations child safe. The standards come with core components to help organisations implement each standard.

The NSW state government has long indicated that it intends to make the Child Safe Standards mandatory for any organisation providing services to children. A public consultation draft was released in December 2020 (see consultation draft here and explainer document here)
