 SAFE CHURCH PROGRAM NATIONAL CHILD SAFETY FRAMEWORK

A child safe institution pays attention to equity by taking into account children’s diverse circumstances. It recognises that some children are more vulnerable to sexual abuse than others, or find it harder to speak up and be heard, and makes the necessary adjustment to equally protect all children. A child safe institution would tailor standard procedures to ensure these children have fair access to the relationships, skills, knowledge and resources they need to be safe, in equal measures with peers” (Royal Commission, 2017).
