SNAICC has developed informative resources to support organisations working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, young people and communities to implement the National Principles for Child Safe Organisations (National Principles).
In partnership with the National Office for Child Safety, the Keeping Our Kids Safe resources apply a cultural lens to the National Principles to help organisations think about how to make themselves safer for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children.
The National Principles
The National Principles are 10 principles, agreed by all Australian governments, that give organisations across Australia a consistent approach to promoting a culture of child safety and wellbeing. The National Principles are flexible and relevant for organisations of all sizes and sectors that engage with children and young people.
A need for more information for organisations working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, young people and communities was identified during consultation on the National Principles. The Keeping Our Kids Safe resources take the National Principles and deliver them in a way that is culturally relevant and promotes cultural safety.
