Prevention of Sexual Exploitation and Abuse

This page provides a home for ACFID’s work, news, guidance and resources on the Prevention of Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (PSEA). ACFID is committed to supporting our members to collectively improve their practice, culture and leadership on PSEA, and we are accountable to our commitment to leadership for change.

About

In 2018, ACFID commissioned the Victorian Institute of Forensic Medicine (VIFM) to conduct an independent review into sector wide practice in relation to the prevention of sexual misconduct. The review resulted in a report outlining recommendations for strengthening sector-wide practice and culture in relation to PSEA. ACFID is implementing the recommendations and has made it a key focus for the organisation and the sector.
