Child & Youth Risk Management

Safe environments don’t just happen; they require ongoing planning, commitment and maintenance. Organisations falling within the scope of the blue card system are required to implement child and youth risk management strategies which address eight minimum requirements. The purpose of these strategies is to ensure that organisations have appropriate policies and procedures in place which assist in identifying and minimising the risk of harm to children and young people in regulated service environments.

Organisations regulated by the blue card system are required to develop and implement a child and youth risk management strategy, which must be reviewed annually.
 
Tools
To assist organisations to develop and implement appropriate child and youth risk management strategies, Blue Card Services has developed a suite of online videos and a toolkit to provide information and guidance on the eight minimum requirements. This suite of online videos and toolkit will help you to provide a solid foundation for the creation and maintenance of a safe service environment for children and young people. These resources and some additional information can be found in the links below and on the Blue Card Services website.
