Child Safe Environments Program

The Child Safe Environments program supports organisations providing services to children and young people to build and maintain environments that are both child safe and child-friendly. These are environments where children and young people:

  • are protected
  • feel respected, valued and encouraged to reach their full potential
  • are heard.

We do this by supporting:

As a prescribed organisation, the department has a Safeguarding Children and Young People Policy, which applies to all children, young people and families we work with.
