Victorian stations 

Victoria’s Child Safe Standards are a mandatory framework to protect children and young people from harm and abuse. The Child Safe Standards commenced in Victoria in January 2016 and will be updated as of 1 July 2022.

Moores has produced a webinar which discusses the new Child Safe Standards at 1 July 2022 and advice on complying with its obligations around: empowering children and young people to understand their rights, encouraging greater involvement of families and communities, ensuring staff and volunteers receive training about their obligations, creating a culturally safe environment for First nations children and young people and considering the needs of LGBTIQA+ children and young people. The webinar is available here.

The Victorian Commission for Children and Young People has produced a range of resources to help you understand and comply with the new Standards.
