We at SHINE for Kids believe children who come to our activities, events or programs should:
- feel comfortable;
- be cared for; and
- feel safe and be safe.
Everyone who works here does their best to make sure children here are protected from any harm.
It is not okay for anyone to hurt your feelings or your body.
It is okay for you to say NO to an adult or another child if they ask you to do something that makes you feel unsafe or uncomfortable.
If you ever feel unsafe or uncomfortable we will listen to you and act to help you.
Anything that makes you feel upset or uncomfortable will be taken seriously by us.
It is always okay to tell someone if you are not feeling comfortable or safe or if you have been hurt.
If you are unhappy with the way you are being treated please tell someone from SHINE for Kids, a parent or contact The Kids Help Line on 1800 551 800.
If you have any concerns regarding this statement or wish to discuss anything about safeguarding children, please contact our Child Safety Officer on 02 9714 3000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
