Commonwealth Child Safety Framework 2022

The DTA is committed to the safety and well-being of children through the promotion and maintenance of a culture that does not permit or tolerate child abuse, neglect, or exploitation.

Under requirement 4 of the Commonwealth Child Safety Framework (CCSF), the DTA is required to publish an annual statement of compliance.

The DTA has very limited interaction and involvement with children and young people but may do so in limited circumstances such as user research. As the DTA is moving away from design and delivery, this will become even less frequent, if at all.

A preliminary risk assessment was completed in 2021, which assessed the overall child safety risk rating for the DTA as ‘low’. This risk assessment remains current however, the DTA will review the risk assessment over the next 12 months.
