The Australian Government, Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) has established a new Child Safe Volunteering (CSV) Hub managed by AVI in the Pacific. The CSV Hub aims to support existing work and leadership in child safeguarding and the promotion of responsible tourism and volunteering practices.
The website provides a centralised space to collaborate and advocate for responsible and child safe practices in volunteering and tourism and share resources and information. The CSV Hub has been established to create networks and consider opportunities for partnerships and joint work across different sectors and industry.
Please contact us if you would like to share news, resources, events, workshops or current developments and work in the area of child safeguarding and child safe tourism and volunteering in the Pacific region. Contact the Pacific CSV Hub Coordinator Amita Prasad at APrasad@avi.org.au.
The CSV Hub welcomes and encourages participation by community and faith based organisations, NGOs, government, tourism and volunteer private sector operators, children’s services, schools, universities, police, church and community leaders, students, communities and children and young people.
