From 1 July 2022, new Child Safe Standards start in Victoria.

All children have a right to be safe, including when they visit a place of worship. Child Safe Standards have been mandatory in Victoria since 2016, so many organisations already have well-developed child safety frameworks. They are compulsory for a large range of organisations, including faith-based organisations who work or volunteer with children up to the age of 18.

The Standards are being strengthened in Victoria, to help protect children and young people from harm and abuse. From 1 July, organisations will need to transition to the new Standards. The Commission for Children and Young People has a range of resources to support you.
