National Principles for Child Safe Organisations
What are the National Principles for Child Safe Organisations?
As part of the Child Safe Organisations project, the Australian Government commissioned the National Children’s Commissioner, Megan Mitchell, to lead the development of National Principles for Child Safe Organisations.
The National Principles were developed under the guidance of Community Services Ministers across Commonwealth, state and territory governments under the National Framework for Protecting Australia’s Children 2009-2020.
The National Principles respond to recommendations by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.
The National Principles aim to provide a nationally consistent approach to creating organisational cultures that foster child safety and wellbeing across all sectors in Australia. This will help to keep children and young people safe and reduce future harm in organisational settings.
The newly formed National Office for Child Safety will seek Council of Australian Governments (COAG) endorsement of the National Principles in late 2018.
The National Principles are:
- Underpinned by a child rights, strengths-based approach.
- High-level and designed to allow for flexibility in implementation across all sectors that engage with children and young people and in organisations of all sizes.
- Aligned with existing state and territory child safe approaches and regulations.
