It is a legal requirement in Western Australia for doctors, nurses, midwives, teachers and police officers to report all reasonable beliefs of child sexual abuse to the Department for Child Protection.

On 1 January 2009, the legislation that governs mandatory reporting of child sexual abuse became part of the Children and Community Services Act 2004.

You can lodge a written mandatory report here using the Department's secure Mandatory Reporting Web System (MRWeb).

Alternatively you can download a PDF mandatory reporting form template under 'Make a report'.

If you are concerned about your safety in making a mandatory report, please discuss this with your supervisor or manager and the Western Australia Police. 

Anyone who is concerned that a child is suffering any form of abuse or neglect, should report their concern to the Department for Child Protection, through a local District Office.
