What are the Child Safe Standards Principles?
Some children are more vulnerable to abuse, based on age, gender, cultural background, disability or prior abuse or neglect. Organisations must take steps to develop their child safe approach by considering the needs of children from diverse backgrounds. The standards help organisations focus their approach by providing three overarching principles:
- promoting the cultural safety of Aboriginal children
- promoting the cultural safety of children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
- promoting the safety of children with disabilities
