NAPCAN’s Commitement Statement to Children and Young People

NAPCAN is committed to embedding child safe organisational practice consistent with the National Principles for Child Safe Organisations, Child Safe Standards and the Commonwealth Child Safe Framework. A child safe organisation is one that creates a culture, adopts strategies and takes action to promote child wellbeing and prevent harm to children and young people.

Aligning with this, NAPCAN commits to consciously and systematically:

  • Creating an environment where children’s safety and wellbeing is at the centre of thought, values and actions;
  • Placing an emphasis on genuine engagement with, and valuing of children and young people;
  • Creating conditions that reduce the likelihood of harm to children and young people;
  • Creating conditions that increases the likelihood of identifying any harm; and
  • Responding to any concerns, disclosures, allegations or suspicions of harm.
