The Victorian Government is introducing new compulsory child safe standards by legislation to help protect children from abuse. From 1 January 2016, the standards will apply to government departments and organisations funded or regulated by government that deliver services for children.
Further information on the standards can be found on the Department of Health and Human Services’ (DHHS) website.
DHHS is holding information sessions about the standards.
