New Child Safe Standards will commence in Victoria on 1 July 2022. 11 New Standards will replace Victoria’s current 7 standards. As a result we are developing a new Child Safe and Wellbeing policy which will replace the current Child Safe Policy.

For more information visit the Commission for Children and Young People.
