Child Safety Policy
VIODA is committed to Child Safety:
We ensure we maintain a Child Safe environment in many ways, some example of this are:
VIODA has adopted the Australian Sailing Member Protection Policy - see below. This policy and our Child Safe Code of Conduct (also below) ensure we have Procedures for dealing with issues and concerns.
The VIODA Secretary is our appointed Child Safety Officer and can be contacted through the VIODA email firstname.lastname@example.org to assist with any concerns regarding Child Safety.
All VIODA staff performing child-related work have Working With Children WWC checks as do our Volunteers who work with Children. This is a part of the procedures we use to decide if our workers and volunteers are suitable for a particular role and we continue to monitor their behaviour around children.
Child-related work is defined as: Work within one or more of the occupational fields defined in the Act where the contact with a child is unsupervised, direct, and part of a person’s duties.
We encourage all Volunteers to complete a WWC check – it is free for volunteers.
