The websites and bodies linked below provide information and resources on children’s rights, child safety and wellbeing at the international, national and state/territory levels.

Many organisations engaging with children and young people are regulated through state or territory legislative requirements, including working with children checks.

For information about state and territory requirements, see these resource sheets developed by the Australian Institute of Family Studies:

  • Resource sheet on requirements for working with children checks and police checks in each state and territory
  • Resource sheet on mandatory reporting requirements in each state and territory
  • Resource sheet on reporting suspected child abuse or neglect to state and territory departments responsible for protecting children
