Statement on National Principles for Child Safe Organisations

News 22 August 2019

On 19 February 2019, the Council of Australian Governments – including the Victorian Government – endorsed National Principles for Child Safe Organisations. While the requirements of the National Principles are similar to those of the Child Safe Standards, it is compliance with the Child Safe Standards that is required by law in Victoria.

To assist organisations required to comply with the Child Safe Standards, here is more information about how the National Principles relate to the Victorian Standards. Further advice is also available by contacting the Commission.
