The Government is Committed to Online Safety Measures

Media Releases

The Government has not ‘culled’ any online safety programs nor has it embarked on ‘contradictory budget cuts’ as has been suggested in media reports today.

The establishment of the e-Safety commissioner will result in a number of existing programs consolidated in a single office.

This will mean these programs are run more efficiently.  Consumers and interest groups will also have a single point of contact.

As a result, the Government has paused the indexation of funding to some of these programs.  However, as a result of the $10 million investment as a result of the Government’s Policy to Enhance Online Safety for Children, overall funding in this area has increased.
