We are seeking feedback on our draft Child Safe Policy and draft Child Safe Principles.

CSIRO is currently drafting a Child Safe Policy and Child Safe Principles that outline the standards expected of the organisation, our staff, and the affiliates and volunteers involved in our programs to ensure the safety of children in our care. The policy and principles outline CSIRO’s compliance with State and Territory legislation and will reflect recent updates to the Commonwealth Government’s Child Safe legislation – including the Draft National Statement for Child Safe Organisations .

The input of the community, our partners, volunteers and staff into the development of our draft Child Safe Policy and draft Child Safe Principles is important. From 29 May 2018 until 9 July 2018 we are seeking input and feedback on our draft policy and principles.
