Department of Human Services

Safe environments – Through their eyes training

Safe environments – Through their eyes training has been developed by the department to assist organisations providing services to children and young people to support their staff and volunteers to recognise, report and respond to children or young people who may be at risk of harm and build their capacity to provide safe environments within the organisation.

Organisations should consider requiring their staff and volunteers that work with children and young people attend a Safe environments training course.

Safe environments training providers

The training is available through a range of public providers. The facilitators on the providers list have been trained by the department's Child safe environments (CSE) Program and offer 1 day and 3 hour refresher face to face Safe environments training (some now offer live online training).  This training is accessed for a fee.

Please refer to the Safe environments – Through their eyes public provider list (PDF 762.3 KB) .
