Becoming a child-safe organisation

The Child Safe Action Plan is about making Council’s activities and services child safe.

 

MIDCOAST Council is asking for community feedback on an action plan designed to build child-safe practices across the organisation.

“Ensuring that children feel safe at all times when in our facilities and accessing our services is an important priority for us,” said Council’s General Manager, Adrian Panuccio.

In 2018, Council committed to become a child safe organisation, as it adopted the Child Protection policy.

“Since then we’ve developed a draft action plan that will guide our efforts to ensuring that we are child-safe,” said Mr Panuccio.

The Draft Child Safe Action Plan outlines actions Council will take to ensure it meets the 10 standards which form the basis of new legislation as part of the NSW Child-Safe Scheme.

The Child Safe Action Plan is about making Council’s activities and services child safe.

Council is now asking the community to let them know if there are any other actions relating to Council activities you think we should include in the draft plan.

You can have your say by visiting our website at https//:haveyoursay.midcoast.nsw.gov.au and completing the form there, or send a written submission to [email protected] before submissions close on Monday 14 February 2022.

“We’re interested in hearing from everyone who may be affected by this action plan, so there’s a special feedback hub just for kids on the have your say page too,” added Mr Panuccio.

“We encourage parents and carers to look over the plan with their children, and for children to express how they feel about the Child Safe Action Plan.”
