Anchor’s Child Safe Standards

Our statement

Anchor is committed to Child Safe Standards and has zero tolerance for abuse, neglect or harm of children. We are committed to the safety and wellbeing of all children participating in our programs and the welfare of children is always our first priority.

We create environments where all children and young people are valued, empowered and feel safe.

Anchor recognises the history and impact of white settlement upon our First Nations people and ensures the cultural safety of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children. Anchor understands and addresses additional barriers faced by children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.

Anchor acknowledges that children with a disability and LGBTQI+ children have additional vulnerabilities and Anchor responds to their individual needs to ensure their inclusion, empowerment and wellbeing.
