Professional Development Event: The future safety of children in Australia
Understanding and adapting to the insights, redress and prevention frameworks and strategies identified by the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.
The Royal Commission’s report and recommendations will have far reaching implications across multiple sectors in our society, with direct implications for any agency working with children or indirect contact with children including education, sports, foster care, employment, policing, legal, and insurance. In addition to many recommendations, the implementation and operation of the Commonwealth Redress Scheme, a key aspect of a comprehensive response by Governments to the Commission, have implications directly impact on any agency funded by State or Federal governments. This professional development event will be the first chance services, agencies, professionals, psychologists / social workers, legal, medical and other services workers will have to hear directly from Commissioner Fitzgerald after the delivery of the Commission to Parliament in Late 2017.
