Statement of Commitment to Child Safety

Little River Community Landcare is a Child Safe organisation, with zero tolerance for child abuse and a commitment to children’s best interests. All children who participate in our activities have a right to feel and be safe. We encourage children to express their views and we listen to their suggestions, especially on matters that directly affect them.

Physical or sexual abuse of a child is a crime and will be reported to police, including grooming for sexual conduct with a child under the age of 16 years. All adults who form a reasonable belief that such an offence has occurred have an obligation to report it to police.

We operate in accordance with Landcare Victoria Inc’s (LVI) Child Safety Policy. The policy also commits our members to uphold the LVI’s Code of Conduct at all times when representing and volunteering for the group.

LRCL Committee members, as organisers of events, will hold a valid Working With Children Card (WWCC). When attending events organised by the Group children must be accompanied and supervised by their parent or guardian. Therefore, it is not mandatory that members hold a  WWCC, unless required by law.

You should be aware however, that Parks Victoria has made it mandatory for volunteers working on land they manage to hold a valid WWCC. You may not be able to participate in some of the Group’s activities if you do not have a WWCC. It is recommended members apply for a WWCC which is free.
