  • Treating children and young people as individuals with rights
  • Ensuring disclosure will be treated seriously and acted upon
  • Ensuring all our staff are empowered and confident to raise concerns
  • Not tolerating any inappropriate behaviour
  • Monitoring environments
  • Training all staff in child abuse including grooming.

Relationships Australia WA is committed to ensuring the cultural safety of children and young people from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, those with a disability and those who identify as LGBTQIA+.

All Relationships Australia WA staff have a responsibility to understand the role they play to ensure the safety and wellbeing
of children and young people.
