Northern Hope Anglican is committed to the safety and equity of vulnerable people, including children and young people, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, the elderly, people with disabilities, and people with identity and mental health challenges.
As an organisation that works with children, we are committed to the National Child Safe Principles. We seek to embed the safety of vulnerable people in organisational leadership, governance, and culture. We seek to ensure that physical and online environments promote safety and wellbeing for all involved.
We are committed to ensuring that all our volunteers and staff are appropriately screened and trained. This includes;
Signing a Code of Conduct.
Working with Children Checks.
Training in how to keep vulnerable people safe.
It's important that everyone in our community, including children and young people, are informed about their rights, and participate in decisions affecting them and are taken seriously. Added to this, we want families and communities to be informed and involved in promoting the safety and wellbeing of vulnerable people.
