Child and youth safety

Child and youth safety

The safety of children and young people is very important.

At Relationships Australia Victoria, we want to make sure children feel safe and welcome at all times. Any type of abuse against children or young people is not okay.

We have rules in place to help keep children and young people safe. We also train our staff so they can help and support you, and keep you safe.

Our commitment to the safety of children and young people

Children and Young People’s Safety Code of Conduct

Everyone who works for us at Relationships Australia Victoria (RAV) is expected to behave in ways that keep children and young people (aged 25 and under) safe.

This Code of Conduct explains what our staff, volunteers and students will and won’t do, when working with children and families.
