|This paper is a response from several community agencies and peak bodies to the Victorian Government’s Department of Justice 2011 call for submissions on the ‘Failure to Project’ Laws Discussion Paper:. ‘Failure to protect’ legislation aims to implement offences for adults who fail to take action when they know or believe that a child who they have custody or care of or live in the same household as is suffering sexual abuse or abuse that may result in serious injury or death or when a child in the same household dies due to child abuse and the adult was aware of the abuse and its seriousness.
