Safeguarding Children Accreditation Program
Our unique accreditation program
Nationally relevant, Safeguarding Children accreditation clearly communicates to children, young people and their families that the organisation values the safety of children and young people.
Accreditation demonstrates to governments, funding bodies and other stakeholders an ongoing organisational commitment to best practice and quality improvement in relation to the protection of children and young people.
We also offer a Certification program which, unlike accreditation, does not include a face to face audit, assessment by an independent panel of experts or an ongoing annual review process. There is more information in the table below and via the link.
Integrated Management System
Organisations who are undergoing or have achieved accreditation are also able to access our Integrated Management System offering support with policy development and much more. An incredible resource for organisations looking to prioritise the safeguarding of children using their services.

The Accreditation Program is a unique voluntary organisational development accreditation scheme for organisations. Over five phases, it offers independent validation of internal systems for protecting children and young people.
We can audit your organisation against relevant child-safe standards and accredit your organisation so that it can communicate its own best practice credentials.
This scheme is endorsed via the ACCC.
Contact us if you’d like to discuss accreditation for your organisation.
