The art of keeping your policies alive – incorporating the child safe standards into your service policies
Updating and reviewing policies is often a task that gets left far too long and becomes a complex and mammoth process. This workshop aims to support you to tackle this issue head on. It will provide you with all the inspiration and practical tools necessary to implement a simple ongoing system to keep your policies current. This will be done by examining the policy implications of the child safe standards introduced in Victoria in 2016.
Complying with the child safe standards will require services to update several of their key policies. Participants will have the opportunity to review which policies to update and learn what needs to be included. The workshop will include some time for participants to work on their own service policies. An opportunity to tackle an important task with support and no phones ringing!
