Statement of Commitment to Child Safety
Essential Disability is committed to the requirements of the Child Protection (Working with Children) Act 2012 and the Children’s Guardian Act 2019. The organisation will also comply with the statutory procedures for Voluntary Out Of-Home Care (VOOHC) as issued by the Office of the Children’s Guardian in NSW.
Essential Disability understands its responsibility for compliance, to the extent that the organisation has a role in VOOHC intake, assessment, supervision, case planning and interagency coordination, as prescribed in the VOOHC statutory procedures.
Essential Disability policies and systems will reflect child safe standards and practices to protect children in VOOHC as well as providing clear and timely responses to information requests and incidents and allegations as they arise. The organisation will promptly advise the Office of the Children’s Guardian of any changes to key personnel, the VOOHC program or any changes in the outlets providing VOOHC.
Essential Disability will ensure all employees and contractors comply with the Child Safety Code of Conduct.
