Education Provider Grants The effects of the Term 4 ban on outdoor education sent shockwaves through the industry and many of our operators with costs they couldn't recover. The NSW Government announced last Sunday that there will be $14M available for application by those affected. Details on eligibility and how to apply will be available in coming weeks. Outdoors NSW & ACT together with partners ACA & CVA are working with the department on when these funds will be available.
The Child Safe Scheme New legislative changes in NSW required all organisations working in a Child-related environment need to comply with the new Child Safe Standards commencing 1 February. It means that certain child-related organisations must implement Child Safe Standards. You can find some tools to assist you on the Children's Guardian Website or view our last week's connect and share session that went through the 10 standards.
