All children have the right to feel safe and to be safe all the time. But safety does not happen automatically.
Assisi is proud to announce that we are a Child Safe organisation. We are serious about our obligation to keep children safe from harm and abuse.
Our recently revised Child Protection Policy includes a range of procedures and practices that help us support and protect children, including:
• Working and Children Checks and National Police Checks for all staff and anyone who visits our projects.
• All personnel (volunteers, contractors and staff) engaged by Assisi must sign a code of conduct.
• All staff must undertake child protection training.
• All projects must regularly assess the potential risks to children, and implement procedures to safeguard them.
We are also working hard with our partners in Cambodia and India to ensure they have the skills and systems to best protect the children that are involved in Assisi projects.
