What are the Child Safe Standards?
The Royal Commission investigated historical allegations of abuse against children within Australian organisations, and found that many failed to protect children from abuse and failed to prioritise the best interests of children when responding to child abuse incidents.
National Principles for Child Safe Organisations
The Royal Commission identified 10 critical elements that are necessary to create a safe environment for children and young people. These elements became the 10 Child Safe Standards and are essential to creating a Child Safe Organisation.
Swim Schools in Australia should now be implementing the Child Safe Standards to:
- Reduce the risk of harm to children and young people
- Strengthen the capacity to respond to child abuse incidents
- Build trust and strengthen relationships with customers and the community
- Comply with legislation and government regulation.
