Safe Environments for Children & Young people
In South Australia, a wide range of people are required by law to notify the Department for Child Protection of situations where child abuse and neglect are suspected.
Safe environments - Through their eyes training has been developed by the Department of Child Protection to assist organisations providing services to children and young people to support their staff and volunteers to recognise, report and respond to children or young people who may be at risk of harm and build their capacity to provide safe environments within the organisation.
Oganisations should consider requiring their staff and volunteers that work with children and young people to attend a Safe Environments training course.
