Reserve and Youth Division has launched a youth safety video – ‘Youth safety matters to us all’.
This video has been developed to increase awareness of the Defence Youth Safety Framework by all Defence members, Defence contractors and Defence grantees - because there is a fundamental requirement to ensure the safety of all children who participate in Defence programs.
The video promotes development of a ‘youth safe’ culture, which is founded on all members of the Defence organisation taking conscientious steps to uphold the safety and wellbeing of young people who interact with adults within Defence and the ADF Cadets program.

After a review of the National situation all three cadet Service groups have agreed to suspension of all ADF Cadet face-to-face activities, including any International activities, until further notice. The cancelation includes all school based Units activity, conducted internal to the school as part of normal curriculum. However, special program cadet unit activities endorsed by Service Chiefs may continue.
Adult Volunteers within the cadet organisations, where National, State and Territory COVID-19 restrictions allow, can continue undertaking activities such as adult leader development courses and planning. We will continually review our position on Adult Volunteers and reconsider as required by any changes in National responses to COVID-19.
