AdSAFE

We are committed to providing a safe environment for our children; all our volunteers undergo the Work With Children Check – http://www.workingwithchildren.vic.gov.au/ . We also have a Safe Church Policy, as governed by AdSafe – you can find out more here – http://safeplaceservices.org.au/

These are the 7 standards which we as a church are committing to adhere to:

  1. Strategies to embed an organisational culture of child safety, including through effective leadership arrangements
  2. A child safe policy or statement of commitment to child safety
  3. A code of conduct that establishes clear expectations for appropriate behaviour with children
  4. Screening, supervision, training and other human resources practices that reduced the risk of child abuse by new and existing personnel
  5. Processes for responding to and reporting suspected child abuse
  6. Strategies to identify and reduce or remove the risk of abuse
  7. Strategies to promote the participation and empowerment of children

We have a dedicated AdSAFE Officer Rosemary Bullen. Please feel free to contact her with any questions you may have: grsnbullen@bigpond.com
