Through Their Eyes

Safe Environments For Children & Young People Course

“Through Their Eyes” training has been developed by the Department of Human Services to assist organisations who provide services to children and young people, enabling their staff and volunteers to recognise, report and respond to children or young people who may be at risk of harm and build their capacity to provide safe environments within the organisation.

The ability to recognise signs of when children or young people are at risk of harm is essential, and a skill that organisations should consider requiring their staff and volunteers to acquire.

The “Through Their Eyes” course provides students with the information needed to identify and report suspected child abuse that they may observe within an organisations work / volunteer role or as a concerned community member, and meets the requirements of the South Australian Children’s Protections Act 1993.

Accustom’s highly qualified Trainer Michael is accredited and deliver the Child Safe Environments Course on behalf of the Department of Human Services.
