Keeping Children and Young people safe.
We are committed to providing services that keep children and young people safe.
Child safe organisation
Our commitment to child safety
A child safe organisation takes action to promote child wellbeing and prevent harm to children and young people.
We ensure our staff and volunteers are responsible for child safety across all areas of our work.
Our work focusses on empowering and keeping children and young people safe.
All Uniting staff are required to complete child safety training and comply with the Child Safety Code of Conduct.
We have provided additional training to some staff, making them Child Safeguarding Champions.
Our Child Safety Advisory Committee has been established to oversee our child safe strategies.
Posters have been developed to help children and young people understand their rights and what to do if they feel unsafe.
