New Child Safe Standards coming into force on 1 July 2022

 

The Victorian Government has announced new Child Safe Standards (Standards) that will come into effect on 1 July 2022.

The eleven new Standards will replace Victoria’s current seven standards and principles. They set out minimum requirements and outline the actions organisations must take to keep children and young people safe.

The new Standards will strengthen child safety, improve Aboriginal cultural safety and empower children and young people.
They require organisations to have policies and procedures in place that promote safe environments for children and young people, and ensure organisations are prepared to respond to allegations of abuse and misconduct.
The new Standards mean:
  • Culturally safe environments will be established
  • Children and young people can participate in decisions affecting them
  • Families are informed and involved in decisions affecting their child
  • Both physical and online environments will promote safety and wellbeing
Organisations subject to the Standards need to comply with the changes by 1 July 2022. The amendments to the regulatory framework will commence on 1 January 2023.
