What's the Difference between a 'child-serving' organisation and a 'child-contact' one?

A ‘Child-serving’ organisation is any organisation which exists to primarily provide services or products to children and young people under the age of 18. Examples include learning institutions (e.g. early education centres, primary and secondary schools, and tutors), youth sports providers (e.g. club and representative sport and training, learn to swim schools, and private coaching), and child entertainers and activity leaders (e.g. children’s party performers, sport-based activity programs/parties, and structured child-focused community initiatives or activities). If, in your ordinary work, your staff primarily or exclusively cater their activities to children and young people, you can safely assume that you are a child-serving organisation.

A ‘Child-contact’ organisation is any organisation which as part of their client or customer base, provides services or products to, or engage with, children and young people. People under the age of 18 are not the primary market, but the work that the organisation does brings their staff and volunteers in to contact with children and young people. Examples include health and wellbeing services ( e.g. doctors, dentists, physiotherapists and optometrists), tradespeople that work at locations where young people are (e.g. plumbers, electricians, general maintenance that attend schools, early education centres or sports facilities), and businesses that employ young people (e.g. retail, grocery and service industries which have employees under the age of 18). If in your ordinary work, your staff have contact with people under the age of 18, you can safely assume that you are a child-contact organisation.
