Our Commitment to Child Safety
Falls Creek Alpine Resort Management Board is a child safe organisation which welcomes all children, young people and their families.
We are committed to providing environments where our children are safe and feel safe, where their participation is valued, their views respected, and their voices are heard about decisions that affect their lives. Our child safe policies, strategies and practices are inclusive of the needs of all children.
We have no tolerance for child abuse and take proactive steps to identify and manage any risks of harm to children entering the Resort.
We promote positive relationships with children, based on trust and respect.
We take proactive steps to identify and manage any risk of harm to children environment. When child safety concerns are raised or identified, we treat these seriously and respond promptly and thoroughly.
Particular attention is given to the child safety needs of Aboriginal children, those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, those with disabilities, children and young people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and gender diverse, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ+) and other children experiencing risk or vulnerability. Inappropriate or harmful behaviour targeting children based on these or other characteristics, such as racism or homophobia, are not tolerated at our organisation and any instances identified will be addressed with appropriate consequences.
Child safety is a shared responsibility. Every person involved in our organisation has an important role in promoting child safety and wellbeing and promptly raising any issues or concerns about a child’s safety.
We are committed to regularly reviewing our child safe practices, and seeking input from children, families, staff, and volunteers to inform our ongoing strategies.
Our Child Protection policy recognises that where a person has a reasonable belief that a child has been sexually abused, that person has an obligation to report the matter to the Victorian police and /or Child Protection (DFFH https://services.dffh.vic.gov.au/child-protection).
