This is Mandatory Reporting ‘Lite’.
Mandatory Reporting ‘Lite’ does not cover private schools, it does not cover the Catholic church, it does not cover the Anglican church, or Jehovah Witnesses, or Islamic or Jewish groups. It does not cover the Scouting association and many other organisations that deal with children every day.
Say ‘No’ to Mandatory Reporting ‘Lite’.
Demand the real thing.
