Starick is committed to the safety and wellbeing of children and young people and to creating and maintaining a child safe organisation that creates a culture, strategies and actions to promote children and young people's wellbeing and protect them from harm.
We believe that supporting children and young people to grow, learn and flourish is integral to their ongoing safety and development.
We are committed to creating environments where children and young people feel safe and heard.
Starick has zero tolerance of child abuse, and all allegations and safety concerns will be treated very seriously and consistently with our robust policies and procedures.
Every person working at Starick understands the important role they play individually and collectively in children and young people's lives and demonstrates this by putting children and young people and their mothers/carers at the centre of decision making and actions.
Our Child Safety Code of Conduct outlines how staff, students and volunteers will behave when working with and around children.
We are committed to upholding children and young people's rights and needs in relation to equity and cultural diversity, with particular attention to the needs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, children with disability, children from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex children and young people.
