On 10 November, 2021 the NSW Parliament passed the Children’s Guardian Amendment (Child Safe Scheme) Bill 2021. Under the new Scheme, from 1 February, 2022, it is mandatory for child-related organisations in NSW to implement the Child Safe Standards to support the safety and wellbeing of children and young people. Failure to comply with legislation and implement the Child Safe Standards risks the mental health of children, and the viability of each organisation.
Right Approach offers a tailored consulting service designed to assist you to implement the Child Safe Standards, strengthening your child safety practice. We have been working with experts in Australia and from around the world for many years on the implementation of the Child Safe Standards to help build the capacity of organisations to maintain safe environments.
Right Approach can help design and develop Child Safe Policies and Procedures aligned to your organisations requirements.

“Developing effective and context sensitive strategies is not a skill that can be learned by simply knowing what law says or understanding the key principles. Right Approach is dedicated to building the capacity of people working across contexts to effectively bring key human rights principles to their work”.
