It’s Children’s Week – meet the colourful characters created by artist Beci Orpin for our new ‘tell grown-ups’ child safety poster

The poster was created with young children in mind, to engage and encourage them to speak up if they feel unsafe.

The poster is bringing a pop of colour – and a clear message about child safety –  to venues like community health centres and sporting facilities. 

Beci, a much-loved Melbourne artist and illustrator, has already attracted almost 3,700 Instagram ‘likes’ for this work. 

’It was a joy to work on something both cute and with a great purpose,’  Beci said. 

All Victorian organisations that provide services or facilities to children are required by law to comply with Child Safe Standards. We have updated a range of resources to assist them, including a compliance monitoring framework, fact sheets and templates. 

What’s on during Children’s Week?

National Children’s Week (20 to 28 October 2018) celebrates a child’s right to enjoy childhood. We are helping to put on free events open to all families across Victoria, particularly targeting those with children 12 years and under. The events include a teddy bears' picnic, educational shows and sausage sizzles.

For more information, please visit Children’s Week on the Department of Education and Training website.
