Child Safety

ISS Australia’s commitment to child safety

ISS Australia is committed to the promotion and protection of the safety of children. We want children to be safe, happy and empowered. All children, regardless of their gender, race, religious beliefs, age, disability, sexual orientation, or family or social background, have equal rights to protection from abuse. All staff, contractors, students and volunteers have a shared responsibility for the care and protection of the children within our care and for reporting suspected child abuse.

We support and respect all children, as well as our staff and volunteers. We have zero tolerance of child abuse, and all allegations and safety concerns will be treated seriously and consistently with our robust policies and procedures. We have legal and moral obligations to contact authorities when we are worried about a child’s safety, which we follow rigorously.

Our organisation is committed to preventing child abuse and identifying risks early, and removing and reducing these risks. Our organisation has robust human resources and recruitment practices for all staff, students and volunteers. Our organisation is committed to regularly training and educating our staff and volunteers on child abuse risks.

We are committed to the cultural safety, participation and empowerment of children and families who are Aboriginal, from linguistically diverse backgrounds, or who are living with a disability. We have specific policies, procedures and training in place that support our managers, staff and volunteers to achieve these commitments.
