Connect Health & Community is committed to creating and maintaining a child safe organisation where protecting children and preventing and responding to child abuse is embedded in the everyday thinking and practice of all its workforce.
Our commitment to the community is to create and sustain an environment where all children are welcomed, safe and protected from abuse. We are dedicated to supporting the cultural safety of Aboriginal children, the cultural safety of children from a culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds and a safe and inclusive environment for children with a disability.
To ensure we are as welcoming, safe and supportive as possible, Connect Health & Community is committed to the newly legislated “Child Safe Standards”. These new standards are to ensure our organisation complies with all child safety laws; but most importantly to support and protect your child.
Everyone working at Connect Health & Community is responsible for the care and protection of children and reporting information about child abuse. We will ensure that our systems protect children from abuse, and will take all allegations and concerns very seriously and respond to them consistently in line with the organisation’s policies and procedures.
