Child Protection in the Community 
Changes to legislation - How could this affect you?

The NSW Government has made a commitment to protecting children in NSW. Part of this commitment is the imposition of standards on organisations that work with children to ensure that they are ‘Child Safe’.

Unlike the Working with Children Check, the Child Safe Standards are a whole of organisation approach to proactively protecting children who engage with services and local government in the community.

Harris Short from NSW Office of the Children's Guardian will speak about why we have the new regulatory scheme, who is responsible for regulating the scheme and some of what the scheme is proposed to be.

The legislation from which the regulation will come, is currently before the NSW Parliament. His role is to work with local governments in NSW to build capacity so that they, and their communities, can meet the standards.

We are aiming at including a small panel of representatives
from Commonwealth and local level for
discussion and Q&A time.

Meetings are held on the first Thursday of the month, every second month and alternate between Kiama, Shellharbour and Wollongong. Agendas usually include updates from peak bodies, local guest speakers and networking workshops.
