Child safety

Wanslea has joined the National Redress Scheme that supports people who have experienced institutional childhood sexual abuse

Committed to the safety of all children

We place the safety of children and young people at the forefront of our operations and are always seeking to strengthen our child safe culture across programs and services.

Some of the ways we do this include:

  • Requiring all paid and unpaid staff to adhere to our Code of Conduct
  • Ensuring all relevant staff have a current Working with Children (WWC) card
  • Requiring all staff undergo police checks and additional screenings based on program requirements
  • Continuously identifying areas for improvement in our services and encouraging our staff, foster carers, volunteers, families and children to report any ideas, concerns or feedback
  • Having clear policies, procedures and systems to ensure that children are kept safe and that anything that could harm a child is reported and actioned
  • Valuing diversity and inclusion, and taking action to encourage participation and prevent discrimination
