In response to the Royal Commission Enquiry into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse , ChildSafe Limited is offering low cost information sessions for community leaders and volunteers in organisational safety. The Australian community is increasingly calling for community organisations to demonstrate that they are safe places for our children to thrive – and in light of the report, the Australian Government is making moves to increase the requirements for organisations by setting National Standards for Child Safety.

 

This information session will cover:

A brief understanding of the Royal Commission report and recommendations that have been made in December 2017 that will impact community organisations.

An overview of the new 10 National Standards for Child Safe Organisations.

 

Each event will have presentation and representation from:

a leading Law Firm sharing the major legal requirements for Organisations in child safety

the Insurance sector to cover insurance requirements for organisations working with children

the ChildSafe team.

The sessions will also provide an open Q&A session with the panel, taking questions from the floor.

 

ChildSafe Limited is a not for profit, children’s harm prevention charity, and has over 10 years experience providing practical tools and training to help community organisations transition from policy to good practice. We promote researched standards for the well-being of children, and help organisations keep the children they care for safe.

Please join us at the National roadshow of information sessions as we partner in this challenge to “Make Australia ChildSafe”. At a time when community organisations have been shamed for failing in their duty of care, ChildSafe is here to help to promote child well-being and safety from harm, and respond to the needs of organsiations to help them sustain this safety effort.

 

Who is this session for?

Volunteers and staff who work with children in any roles, such as sporting coaches, youth group and children’s program leaders such as scouts, girl guides, church and other community organisations

Leaders in organisations, responsible for Child Protection Policy and governance

Community services workers who have responsibility for children, and work in institutions responding to children with histories of harm such as Foster Care, hospitals, mental health services and other allied health professionals

Parents, caregivers and anyone with an interest in the outcomes of the Royal Commission Enquiry into Institutional responses to Child Sexual Abuse

Want to know what the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) means for you, how to access it, how to prepare for your planning meeting, or what to do when you get your NDIS plan?

Yooralla is holding free one-on-one NDIS discussions in Flemington to help people with disability and their carers to make the most of the NDIS, no matter what stage of their NDIS journey they are in.

We can explain how the NDIS works, how to access the NDIS, how to prepare for your NDIS planning meeting and if you have your plan how to make the most of it – all in easy to understand language.

This is not a group session which means that you can discuss your personal circumstances in private – as well as have your NDIS questions answered.

“The one to one session was really beneficial because … I was able to ask questions about our son’s needs with a person who was very knowledgeable in the area and took the time to listen and respond.” Heather from Manningham

Location: Flemington Community Centre, 25 Mt Alexander Road, Flemington

Available sessions: 6 sessions per day

Length of session: 45 min

This year we're excited to celebrate 50 years of our library service!

In 1968, Flemington, Sam Merrifield (then Essendon) and Niddrie libraries opened their doors to the public for the very first time, marking 50 years of operation. This is a wonderful chance for the community to celebrate our libraries’ rich histories and the opportunities they continue to provide people of all ages, from all walks of life.

The three libraries turning 50 in 2018 will each host birthday celebrations which promise plenty of fun for everyone.
