Safeguarding Children

Safeguarding Children

VPL is a child safe organisation certified by the Australian Childhood Foundation. This means that we are committed to safeguarding children and young people from abuse and neglect.

In all our work we will 

  • protect children and young people from all forms of abuse, bullying and exploitation
  • be alert to incidents of child abuse and neglect occurring outside the scope of our operations and services that may have an impact on the children and young people to whom we provide a service; and
  • create and maintain a child safe culture that is understood, endorsed and put into action by all the individuals who work for, volunteer or access our programs and services.

    Our child safe policies and procedures will soon be able to be viewed here,  Our policies are being developed and approved and will cover the following:

    Safeguarding Children and Young People Policy

    Safeguarding Children – Responding to Reports and Allegations Policy
