Policy: Child Safety

Commitment to Child Safety

The Grainger Wind Symphony Inc. is committed to child safety. We want children to be safe, happy and empowered. We support and respect all children, as well as our members and associates. We are committed to the safety, participation and empowerment of all children. We have zero tolerance of child abuse, and all allegations and safety concerns will be treated very seriously and consistently with our robust policies and procedures. We have legal and moral obligations to contact authorities when we are worried about a child’s safety, which we follow rigorously.

Our organisation is committed to preventing child abuse and identifying risks early, and removing and reducing these risks. Our organisation has robust practices and procedures to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all children. We are committed to the cultural safety of Aboriginal children, the cultural safety of children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, and to providing a safe and inclusive environment for children with a disability. We have specific procedures in place that support our members and associates to achieve these commitments..

In addition, Committee would like to state as an example of our procedures that all members who work with children are holders of current working with children’s checks, and affirm our commitment to notify police at the first instance of concern.
