Australia: DFAT Child Protection Policy – October 2017
Government of Australia – October 26, 2017
The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) has a zero tolerance approach to child exploitation or abuse. DFAT recognises that it is the shared responsibility of all adults to prevent child exploitation and abuse. In Australia, there is recognition that organisations that work with children also have a role in protecting them, and need policies and procedures to enable them to do so. The Child Protection Policy is part of DFAT’s child protection framework.
