Hoiles and Corney argue strongly in favour of the development of a code of ethical practice by youth workers for youth work. The article focuses on the need in Victoria, Australia, and is set within the context of Australian legislation that governs relationships with children and youth, and children's wellbeing. Their main arguments centre on the safety of clients, the safety and protection of youth workers, and the need to develop a platform of consensus for the professionalisation of youth work.
