Child Safe Statement of Commitment

Unison is committed to promoting and protecting the interests and safety of children and young people that come into contact with our services. We want children to be safe, happy and empowered.  We have zero tolerance for child abuse. We are further committed to the cultural safety of Aboriginal children, and those from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, and to providing a safe environment for children living with a disability.  All children have equal rights to protection from abuse.  We support and respect all children as well as our staff, and contractors.

Child protection and reporting information about suspected child abuse is the responsibility of all Unison staff and contractors, particularly if the function of their job includes, or is likely to include contact with children.  Unison is committed to identifying risks early, and removing and reducing these risks through robust human resources and recruitment practices.

All staff are required to be aware of relevant laws, organisational policies and procedures, the organisation’s Code of Conduct, and their obligation to comply with all requirements. 

If you believe a child is in immediate risk of abuse, call 000.
