Regulatory changes across Australia are on the way to ensure organisations with children in their care comply with nationally consistent child safe standards.
All community services organisations that have a duty of care to children need to make sure their child safeguarding standards and processes are at the highest possible level.
Have your team trained by Child Wise, pioneers in child safety, to make sure your organisation meets the Child Safe Standards. Our qualified and experienced experts will come to you and train your teams focusing on awareness, prevention and early intervention: we will work with you to create a framework of standards that are robust from the ground up.
Our child protection training programmes are beneficial for community organisations such as neighbourhood centres, youth centres, volunteer networks, social support projects, disability services, multicultural community services, sports or recreation centres, and more.
Why Child Wise?
Our services ingrain a sense of child protection into culture.
Child Wise see the protection of children within community organisations as far more than a certificate on the wall or a few questions online; it is about empowering children and helping them hear their own voices reflected throughout the organisations they are connected to. Our services are flexible, but a key differentiator is we can spread a change of attitude throughout an entire organisational culture.
With over 28 years experience delivering child protection training to the community services sector, we are passionately focused on our role in keeping children safe from harm. We work with your staff and volunteers to create systemic change that is right for your organisation. Our programs methodically embed a mindset throughout organisational culture to prevent abuse and exploitation.

Child protection resources and outcomes for community organisations
Depending on the program, we will provide attendees with valuable accompanying learning material to take away to deepen their knowledge or refer to.
The material provided can help participants map out their action plans and what to do next when back in their day jobs, provide reference material that can be used on a day to day basis as well as help participants to share their experience with fellow colleagues.
Our training sessions will provide team members networking and sharing opportunities in a safe space.
Learning outcomes vary by type of training program as well as by what your organisation wants to achieve in that specific session, which will be discussed and agreed with our experts prior to the session.
