Bendigo Neighbourhood Hub's Commitment to Child Safety
All children who come into Bendigo Neighbourhood Hub have a right to feel and be safe. The welfare of children coming into our facility will always be our first priority and we have a zero-tolerance approach to child abuse and harm.
Our Child Safety policy and Child Safe Code of Conduct document outlines how we prioritise the safety and wellbeing of children and the steps we will take to achieve this.
All BNH staff, volunteers, Committee of Management and individuals involved in BNH must agree to abide by BNH’s Child Safety & Wellbeing Code of Conduct which specifies the standards of conduct required when working with children to ensure they are kept safe from harm including child abuse.
Information on how to report an incident is posted throughout our facility or see details below.
Our Child Safe Policies and Code of Conduct Documents are available to be viewed on our noitce-boards or please contact us.
