    Parent and carer information guide

    There are a number of things organisations can do to make sure that children with disability are safe. This guidance will provide parents and carers with information to help them choose the right service provider for their family, whether from an organisation or individual service provider.


    We've created 2 brochures that provide a handy overview of what parents and carers can look for in services and organisations:

    • Choosing an organisation to work with your child
    • Choosing a person to work with your child

    Share these brochures in your parent and carer networks to raise awareness of child-safe services in your community.
