Child safe organisation framework

Our principles of child protection and care are aligned with the UnitingCare Queensland values compassion, respect, justice, working together and leading through learning.

Our Child Safe, Child Friendly Framework addresses:

  1. Our culture – embedding an approach of individual and collective responsibility for the safety of children across our organisation and that standards of behaviour are clear and upheld

  2. Our people – ensuring our people are suitable for working with children and are supported to make good decisions about the care of children

  3. Our settings – assessing and mitigating risk of harm to children

  4. Our response – ensuring that if there are concerns about the safety of a child, we respond quickly and appropriately to hold people and systems to account and to protect any children at risk.
