Information Of Relevance

This page includes links to various open source articles which may be relevant to your child safe organisation.

As the National Principles are new and evolving academia, the media and other similar agencies are continually expanding available content. There are several organisations which are continually updating their content such as the Australian Institute of Family Studies and the Australian Catholic University Institute of Child Protection Studies.

These articles often use research to explore areas of improvement and are a valuable resource to reflect on and improve your child safe practices. Likewise jurisdictions such as the United Kingdom, New Zealand and Canada (with similar common law systems) also have available resources.
