Child Safety in Local Government
What is this training about?
The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, cited the fundamental role local governments play in supporting communities across Australia. The active role local governments take in community safety, was recognised as an opportunity to integrate their direct responsibilities to keep children and young people safe with their wider role within the community.
In February 2019, members of the Council of Australian Governments, the Prime Minister and state and territory First Ministers, endorsed The National Principles for Child Safe Organisations (National Principles) which give effect to recommendations of the Royal Commission. As a result all local governments need to ensure they meet the National Principles.
This interactive virtual classroom will help participants to view the key messages of the Royal Commission and consider the application of the National Principles within local governments across Australia.
