The Maleny Presbyterian is committed to the safety and holistic wellbeing of all children and young people involved in our events. To ensure that children and young people are kept safe from harm, our staff and volunteers are required to possess a current blue card; agree to adhere to a code of conduct when working with children; and undergo training in child safety.
The Presbyterian Church of Queensland and our church take child protection and safety seriously and consequently has policies and procedures in place to ensure that your child has the best possible experience with us.
We are committed to a policy of mandatory reporting on all matters of abuse.
All staff and volunteers undergo training in relation to child safety and risk management, utilizing the training offered through the ChildSafe organization www.childsafe.org.au
All activities whether at a denominational or congregational level are assessed and approved through the processes set out in the ChildSafe training. Comprehensive reporting on activities and updating of data are part of our ongoing commitment to maintaining a safe environment and safe activities.
