Through their Eyes is a day long program that assists individuals to understand their exisiting legal obilgations in reporting concern when a child is or likely to be at risk.

Any person who is an employee of, or volunteer in, an organisation formed for religious or spiritual purposes (i.e. the church) are obliged by law to notify the Department for Child Protection if they suspect on reasonable grounds that a child/young person has been or is being abused or neglected and the suspicion is formed in the course of the person’s work (whether paid or voluntary) or in carrying out official duties.

Notification to the Child Abuse Report Line (13 14 78) must be made of that suspicion as soon as practicable after he or she forms the suspicion.

Part of the church’s ongoing best practices is to provide training opportunities for people to understand their legal responsibility for Reporting Child Abuse & Neglect.

Training “Safe Environments – Through their eyes”

The training course is the standard accredited package and the trainers are all approved by the department to deliver this content. Please note – this is not the DECD RAN version of the course.
