Child Safety Policy
South Port Community Housing Group is committed to child safety. Our aim is for all children and young people connected to our services to feel safe, happy and empowered.
SPCHG has a zero tolerance approach to child abuse and actively works to listen to and empower children. At SPCHG we take all allegations or concerns very seriously and allegations will be dealt with in line with our policies and procedures. We are bound by legal and moral obligations to contact authorities when we are concerned for a child’s safety.
SPCHG staff are trained in responding to issues of child safety and child abuse and the organisation is committed to regular ongoing training and education on this issue.
We support and respect all children and are committed to the cultural safety of Indigenous children, children from culturally diverse backgrounds and children with disabilities.
If you believe a child is at immediate risk of abuse please phone 000.
