CHILD SAFETY
 

Child Safety is embedded at every level of GAC – from its employees to its policies and procedures (ie how we conduct out work), its governance and its culture.

GAC is a Child Safe Organisation and is committed to the safety of children and protecting children from abuse. There is a requirement that the incumbent always has in place whilst working at GAC a current National Police Check and Working with Children Check (and such other checks that GAC may mandate from time to time).

Where the incumbent’s role involves working with children and young people they must be informed about their rights, participate in decisions affecting them and be taken seriously.
 

DIVERSITY & INCLUSION
 

GAC is committed to ensuring that people who are employed at, or use our services, have a safe place to work/visit.

The incumbent, as a condition of working at GAC must:

  • Embrace and foster diversity.

  • Recognise and overcome personal biases.

  • Be respectful and value everybody’s contribution – regardless of whether they differ from what some would consider the social “norms”.

  • Assist GAC to foster a work culture that allows employees to be themselves at work without fear.
     

Above all, never discriminate – either directly or indirectly – against any person because they may differ from you. It is also a requirement that where the incumbent observes discriminatory behaviour, they must immediately report it to their supervisor.
 

FAMILY VIOLENCE
 

Undertake the appropriate level of The Family Violence Multi-Agency Risk Assessment and Management Framework (MARAM) training. The level of training will be determined by GAC and will be based on your level of responsibility.

The training will allow the incumbent to:

  • Respectfully, sensitively, and safely engage with clients.

  • Identify family violence.
     

Where family violence is suspected, the incumbent will discretely advise their manager who will then refer the matter to the appropriate family violence practitioner.
