​We are a Child Safe Organisation

City of Canterbury Bankstown is committed to upholding the Convention on the Rights of the Child and we are continuously working through our Child-Friendly City Action Plan
The Child Friendly City initiative is a UNICEF global initiative to ensure the voices, needs, priorities and rights of children are an integral part of public policies and programs.
In addition to this, CBCity is committed to being a Child Safe Organisation, as prescribed by the National Child Safe Scheme. The NSW Child Safe Standards provide a framework for ensuring organisations put the needs of children first and continually work to improve practices to keep children safe from harm.

Child Safe Organisation Statement of Commitment


Did you know that keeping children safe is every adult’s responsibility?

All adults in NSW are legally responsible for reporting child safety concerns of abuse or neglect.

This year to recognise Child Protection Week, City of Canterbury Bankstown has created a program of activities and events for all families to understand that child protection is everyone’s responsibility. From engaging workshops to interactive events, we’re dedicated to creating a safe and nurturing environment for children.

Explore our program of activities HERE that promote awareness of child protection and empower families!
