Family & Children’s Services


The City of Ballarat is committed to child safety and adherence to the Child Safe Standards.

We are committed to the safety, participation and empowerment of all children. We have zero tolerance of child abuse, and all allegations and safety concerns will be treated very seriously and consistently with our policies and procedures.

We have legal and moral obligations to contact authorities when we are worried about a child's safety, which we follow rigorously.

We are committed to the cultural safety of Aboriginal children and children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds, and in providing a safe environment for children with disabilities.
