Child Safe Standards

Kingston is proud to be a child-safe organisation

We’re committed to ensuring no children are harmed by staff, volunteers or work experience students – as required by the Victorian Government’s new Child Safe Standards.

The Child Safe Standards work to:

  • prevent child abuse within our services, programs and facilities
  • set clear expectations and training for staff, volunteers and work experience students
  • ensure all suspected abuse is reported and fully investigated.

By working together we can help keep children safe

  • If something doesn’t feel right, report it.
  • If a child is in imminent or immediate danger, call 000 immediately.
