STATEMENT OF COMMITMENT TO CHILD SAFETY
The participation and empowerment of children and young people are fundamental principles that underpin our work. LifeChanger Foundation acknowledges our responsibility to keep children safe from abuse. All individuals associated with our organisation will ensure that the safety of children is always a priority. LifeChanger Foundation has a zero-tolerance approach to child abuse. We champion diversity and inclusion and will not tolerate or endorse discriminatory practices of any kind. LifeChanger Foundation recognises the increased vulnerabilities of various community cohorts. Therefore, our practices pay particular attention to ensuring the inclusion of:
the cultural safety of Aboriginal children.
the cultural safety of children from culturally diverse and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds.
the safety of children with a disability.
the safety of children who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and/or intersex. the safety of children in out of home care and youth justice.
AT LIFECHANGER WE BELIEVE….
It takes COURAGE to make a change and never to let fear stand in the way of keeping children and young people safe. We speak up for the rights of children and young people and will always speak up when something does not feel right.
We are all in! Our HEART and soul is in everything we do. We are passionate about keeping children and young people safe and strive to empower children and young people and amplify their voices, particularly around issues that impact their lives.
Our TRIBE is connected and a place to belong. We believe trust, respect and accountability build a strong community and commit to having an open dialogue with communities around keeping their children and young people safe from harm.
We know change is possible and that a child safety ‘hero’ lives inside each of us. With hard work and transparent policies and processes, and curious minds, it is possible to keep children and young people safe from abuse and harm. If you can dream it, you can do it! And at LifeChanger, we recognise the INFINITE POSSIBILITIES that young people have and how we can work together to ensure children and young people live thriving and resilient lives that are free from abuse and harm.
