- Our purpose is to ensure that all children and young people in Tasmania are known, safe, well and learning.
- Our work is guided by the findings and recommendations of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse and the Tasmanian Department for Education, Children and Young People’s Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.
- If you are worried about your safety or the safety of a child or young person, you must report it immediately.
The Office of Safeguarding Children and Young People is committed to ensuring that all children and young people in Tasmania are known, safe, well and learning.
The voices of children and young people are at the centre of everything we do. If you make a report, it will be taken seriously.
If your concerns relate to a school, you should report them to your teacher or the school principal.
There is also a Safeguarding Lead in every State Government school. They help plan and put in place strategies to support the wellbeing of all students, and foster a culture where it is understood that safeguarding is everyone’s responsibility.
You can also contact via email, the Community Liaison Manager for your region to discuss any concerns you may have about your school.
