Reportable Conduct Scheme Now in Tasmania
by Brighton Council
The introduction of the Reportable Conduct Scheme on 1 January 2024 has placed additional responsibilities on leaders of designated organisations in order to reduce child abuse. As part of this scheme, leaders are required to notify an independent regulator upon receiving concerns about conduct related to child abuse involving a worker. Subsequently, thorough investigations into allegations must be conducted.
The Reportable Conduct Scheme aims to make sure that organisations dealing with young people investigate concerns about their well-being in a careful, open, secure and child-focused manner. More information on the Reportable Conduct Scheme can be found online at www.justice.tas.gov.au.
