Juno is a Child Safe organisation. Everyone working at Juno is responsible for the care and protection of children and for reporting child abuse.
We have zero tolerance of child abuse and are committed to its prevention, increased awareness, and support for victim survivors of child abuse and neglect including victim survivors of historical abuse. Our approach to the safety and agency of children recognises that it is a community wide-responsibility and that all adults have a role to play in keeping children safe.
We are committed to complying with all relevant child safe legislation and other laws with specific obligations around how we handle disclosures of abuse, deal with grooming behaviour, and protect children from abuse.
Juno is committed to promoting and protecting the best interests of children at all times. All children, regardless of their gender, race, religious beliefs, age, ability, sexual orientation, or family or social background, have equal rights to protection from abuse.
We are committed to:
- protecting the safety of children and eliminating risks that threaten child safety in our organisation
- actively working to listen to and empower children and recognise their agency
- promoting cultural safety of all children, including:
- Aboriginal children,
- children from culturally and/or linguistically diverse backgrounds
- children with a disability
- children who identify as LGBTQI+
Child safety is a shared responsibility between Juno, all employees, workers, contractors, associates, and members of the community in which we work.
