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.

Learn more about youthHQ?
YouthHQ is a portal for information relating to Defence youth matters.
This initiative was prompted in part by feedback from youth, education professionals, parents and carers and recognises the need for a single point of reference from which information about the individual Defence youth programs can be easily accessed.
This site was developed in collaboration and consultation with members of the Defence Youth Network
