Policies, Procedures and Guidelines (WA)

< Back

By creating a child-safe and friendly environment, an organisation:

  • minimises the risk of harm to children in their care;
  • gives confidence to employees and volunteers so that they know what is expected from them and what to do;
  • assures parents that the organisation is responsible and takes pride in its work; and
  • shows a commitment to protecting children.
