Standard 6: Reducing & Removing Risks

Strategies to identify and reduce or remove risks of child abuse

Identifying potential risks before they occur ensures your organisation is taking a preventative approach. Begin by examining your existing Risk Management Plan. Things to consider are:

  • Understand the level of risk associated with your organisation and the services and activities it provides.
  • Discuss the risks of each activity or event. Seek to identify what the risks are and what can you do to reduce these risk.
  • Include children and young people in this discussion as they may have some specific experiences that further your understanding of the risks.
  • Have your committee approve these documents and procedures and commit to reviewing them annually.
  • Encourage the leaders to use them!
