The Safeguarding Capabilities in Preventing Child Sexual Abuse Survey (Safeguarding Capabilities Survey) measures the capabilities of the workforce - staff and volunteers - in preventing and responding to safeguarding concerns.
It gives you an opportunity to reflect on the extent to which your organisation self-assesses the capabilities, behaviours and attitudes of staff in relation to safeguarding children by measuring the following:
- organisational culture and awareness of policy and procedures
- confidence to act
- attitudes to prevention and agency of children and young people
- situational prevention knowledge and education.
You can use that data to reflect on current safeguarding practices within your organisation, and go on to tailor specific policies, procedures and training programs to better equip your workforce in better practice to prevent child sexual abuse.
During the survey period, you will have access to real-time results. At the end of the survey period, you will receive a report to help you identify any gaps in policy and procedures, training, and concerns with workforce attitudes to child sexual abuse and its prevention. Addressing these will help improve safety for children and young people. You are also invited to review your results in terms of how they align with the Australian National Child Safe Principles using a tool we have developed. Read more about the tool.
