Child Safety Practices

In June 2019, the National Office for Child Safety introduced the Commonwealth Child Safety Framework which sets standards for creating and embedding child safe cultures and practices in non-corporate Commonwealth entities. Although working and engaging with children is not a core activity of the agency, ONI is committed to the safety and wellbeing of children and young people and will ensure appropriate processes are embedded to create and maintain a child safe culture. To this end, the agency developed and promulgated an Instruction for complying with the Framework and for acting ethically towards children in the workplace and/or when carrying out official duties.
