Windana is a Child Safe organisation that prioritises the safety of children and young people in its care, and builds child safety into everyday thinking and practice.
What is a Child Safe organisation?
Organisations that provide services or facilities for children (people less than 18 years old) are required by law to implement Child Safe Standards to protect them from harm. All organisations working with children, like Windana, must take steps to prevent abuse and neglect.
Child Safe Standards promote the safety of children by requiring organisations to implement policies to prevent, respond to and report allegations of child abuse.
How do I report concerns about a child’s safety to Windana?
Windana is committed to ensure that children, young people, staff, volunteers, parents and carers feel confident, enabled and supported to safely disclose child safety concerns.
Parents and carers who have concerns about a child’s safety while in a Windana service can contact Windana’s Child Safety Officer Vanessa May on 03 9529 7955.
