New video and radio play resources - Working together to keep kids safe - Key messages for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities
Blue Card Services is pleased to announce that new video and radio play resources are now available on our YouTube channel.

We are all working together to keep kids safe and through these resources Blue Card Services is aiming to raise awareness and education about the blue card system within remote communities.

Risk Management - Changes to mandatory reporting
From 1 July 2017, early childhood education and care (ECEC) professionals are mandated by law to report child safety concerns to the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services, where there is a reasonable suspicion that the child has suffered, is suffering, or is at unacceptable risk of suffering, significant harm caused by physical or sexual abuse, and there is not a parent willing and able to protect the child from harm. For more information, please visit the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services website.
It is a requirement that an organisation reviews its child and youth risk management strategy annually. If the above changes are relevant to your service environment, we recommend that you review and update your policies and procedures accordingly.
