Safe Children Conference 2019 | Summary Program
Safe Children Conference 2019 | safe child principles & updates from Government on policy
The Royal Commission has had a significant impact on the way the religious institutes operate in Australia and many have recognised that action is needed continually to prevent future suffering and pain. Religious Institutes attend Safe Children Conference to learn safe child principles and garner critical updates from Government on policy. In addition, the treatment, prevention and healing breakout sessions give practical guidance to attendees. Religious institutes are a key target audience for Safe Children Conference.
The Safe Children Conference is run by CAPS (Child Abuse Prevention Service) a non-religious, non-political, non-government benevolent organisation. It arms delegates with tools to create a safe child environment as well as Government updates and the latest information from The Children’s Guardian, The National Office for Child Safety and Child Wise.

If you are participating in continuing education the Safe Children Conference supports this by awarding delegates with six live contact hours.
The aim of the Safe Children Conference’s prevention and treatment breakout sessions is to help delegates create an environment that promotes the empowerment of children.
The breakout sessions will also make a difference to help delegates identify and report abuse cases more readily.
