Our Commitment to the Safety of Children

We are committed to creating and maintaining an environment that promotes the safety of all children, and ensuring their voices are heard about decisions that affect their lives. This includes encouraging a culture where the prevention and reporting of abuse is supported and encouraged. All staff and volunteers are responsible for promoting the safety, wellbeing and empowerment of children.

Our Commitment to Cultural Safety of Aboriginal Children

We are committed to cultural safety and wellbeing of Aboriginal children and young people. This will be a primary focus of our care and decision-making. Just Swimming has zero tolerance for child abuse or racism and as an organisation we will act on incidents of both.

Aboriginal Children are able to express their cultural identity and this makes them stronger and safer.  Cultural safety includes the rights of each child to develop and express their background, customs, social behaviour, language, religion or spirituality, beliefs and way of living.
