South Kingsville Community Centre believes that all children have the right to a life that is free from harm. Our service aims to provide an environment that is free from any type of abuse and foster a child’s growth and development as per the individual requirements of each child. Educators at our service are aware of their obligations under the law in regards to the welfare of children and at all times uphold their obligation. In addition to this, our service aims to provide regular training to all educators (along with any volunteers, students etc) on child protection issues to ensure that, in the event a child has suffered abuse, the service can act quickly in the best interests of the child.
South Kingsville Community Centre is committed to safety and wellbeing of all children and young people. This will be the primary focus of our care and decision-making. South Kingsville Community Centre has zero tolerance for child abuse. South Kingsville Community Centre is committed to providing a child safe environment where children and young people are safe and feel safe, and their voices are heard about decisions that affect their lives. Particular attention will be paid to the cultural safety of Aboriginal children and children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, as well as the safety of children with a disability.
Every person involved in South Kingsville Community Centre has a responsibility to understand the important and specific role he/she plays individually and collectively to ensure that the wellbeing and safety of all children and young people is at the forefront of all they do and every decision they make.
