How child safety in your organisation aligns to the National Principles for Child Safe Organisations

This tool was developed to help you think about how well you are implementing the National Principles and identify areas in governance and practice in your organisation that need to become more child safe. We have matched questions from the Children's Safety Survey with principles that align very closely or to some extent to the National Principles. We hope this tool can help your organisation become more child safe.
