Child Safe Standards

Ballarat City Council Child Safe Statement

The City of Ballarat is committed to being a child safe organisation and has zero tolerance for child abuse and harm.  

We are committed to providing an environment and culture that promotes the safety, health and well-being of children and young people and which provides a voice to all children, including those from an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander background, with disabilities and from culturally, religiously and linguistically diverse backgrounds.   

We have policies, procedures and training in place that support our employees, volunteers and contractors to achieve these commitments and to ensure all children are listened to, their views respected, and their contribution recognised to ensure Council environments are safe.
