A workshop with Dr Joe Tucci, CEO, Australian Childhood Foundation

In this two hour workshop, participants will learn about the four risk factors that all organisations face in relation to preventing abuse and exploitation of children by employees and volunteers.

 

A framework is presented that supports organisations to establish a safeguarding perimeter through recognising the important cultural elements of an organisation that promotes the safety of children. This is an important opportunity for all organisations that provide a service or activity to children, young people and their families to explore practical ways to evaluate and address vulnerabilities in their approach to child protiection.
