Our commitment 

Watch this video to hear DCJ Secretary Michael Tidball and the senior leadership team affirm their commitment to child safety. Hear about the strategic role DCJ is playing to implement child safe standards as well as some of the work that’s already improving child safety across NSW.

The Child Safe Scheme

The Children's Guardian Amendment Act 2021 has been introduced to make child related organisations safer for all young people. The new legislated scheme has 10 Child Safe Standards recommended by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse following extensive research and consultation about what makes organisations child safe.

Read the 10 Child Safe Standards on the Office of the Children Guardian’s website.
