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

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 and Family Support, through a local District Office.
