National Principle for child safe organisation

  1. Child safety and well-being are embedded in organisational leadership, governance and culture.

  2. Children and young people are informed about their rights, participate in decisions affecting them and are taken seriously.

  3. Families and communities are informed and involved in promoting child safety and well-being.

  4. Equity is upheld, and diverse needs are respected in policy and practice.

  5. People working with children and young people are suitable and supported to reflect child safety and well-being values in practice.

  6. Processes to respond to complaints and concerns are child-focused.

  7. Through ongoing education and training, staff and volunteers are equipped with the knowledge, skills and awareness to keep children and young people safe.

  8. Physical and online environments promote safety and well-being while minimising the opportunity for children and young people to be harmed.

  9. Implementation of the national child safe principles is regularly reviewed and improved.

  10. Policies and procedures document how the organisation is safe for children and young people.

Breach of Child Safety Policy


Failure of disclosure: It is considered a serious criminal offence in Australia if an adult has committed a sexual offence against a child and does not report it to the police.


Failure to protect – The key management will be held accountable if they were aware of the possible risk of child sexual assault and could prevent it but could not do so due to their negligence or incompetence. Breach of this policy may lead to disciplinary action; however, in case of grave breach, the case will be considered a criminal offence under pertinent legislation.

Mandatory reporting


Dynamic Support Services takes all allegations seriously and has practices in place to investigate thoroughly and quickly. Our staff and volunteers are trained to deal with allegations appropriately. We work to ensure all children, families, staff and volunteers know what to do and who to tell if they observe abuse or are a victim and if they notice inappropriate behaviour.


We all have a responsibility to report an allegation of abuse if we reasonably believe that an incident occurred. If an adult reasonably believes that an incident has occurred, they must report it. Factors contributing to reasonable belief may include:

  • A child states they or someone they know has been abused (noting that sometimes the child may be referring to themselves)

  • Behaviour consistent with that of an abuse victim is observed.

  • Someone else has raised a suspicion of abuse but is unwilling to report it.

  • We are observing suspicious behaviour.
