Child Safe Policy and Code of Conduct Form to be Signed by all Parish Volunteers.pdf

In April 2012, the Victorian Govt. initiated an enquiry into the handling of child abuse allegations within religious and other non-government organisations. The enquiry’s first report “Betrayal of Trust” made a number of recommendations that have been acted on by the Victorian Government.

The Commission for Children and Young People developed “A Guide for Creating A Child Safe Organisation “which sets out a compulsory set of standards for organisations to meet for promoting and providing a safe environment for children, young people and other vulnerable persons.

Required under the compulsory standards, the Child Safe Policy provides an overview of key elements of our approach for promoting and providing a safe environment for children, young people and other vulnerable persons in our community; whilst the Code of Conduct lists appropriate behaviours and those not. 

Please read the attached policy and code of conduct required by volunteers in our Parish whose work may involve interaction with children.  Before you can work as a volunteer please return a signed copy of the Code of Conduct to the Parish office for filing.

A member of the Parish community will be in contact with you regarding the next phase of your induction. 

You cannot commence in your volunteer role without completing induction.
