Our Commitment to Child Safety

Eastern Community Legal Centre (ECLC) is committed to providing services and working environments that protect all children from harm and that promote their wellbeing.

This includes the cultural safety of children from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islands, those from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, and children with a disability.

ECLC is responsible for ensuring that all staff, volunteers and contractors who provide or may provide direct or indirect services to children understand how to interact safely with child clients and children in the community.

The following information sheets help staff and ECLC clients understand ECLC’s child safety responsibilities and what happens if those responsibilities are not met:

  1. Working with Children Check
  2. Failing a Working with Children Check
  3. Child Safety-Incident Grievance Procedure
  4. Managing Child Safety Breaches and Incidents
