Murawin’s Commitment to Child Safety and Wellbeing

Dec 14, 2023

Murawin, at it’s core, is a family business with a deeply held belief in, and commitment to our mission of ending cycles of disadvantage for First Nations and other marginalised communities. At the heart of family are children, which is why we have put in place an official Child Safety and Wellbeing Policy at Murawin. 

Statement of Commitment to Child Safety and Wellbeing at Murawin 

At Murawin, we are committed to creating a safe and supportive environment for all children and young people who access our services, programs and activities. We respect the rights, dignity and wellbeing of every child and young person, and we strive to protect them from any form of harm or abuse. We uphold the principles of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, and particularly our First Nations children and young people and we adhere to the relevant child protection legislation and standards in our operations. We recognise the diversity and cultural backgrounds of the children and young people we work with, and we ensure that our policies and practices are inclusive and respectful of their needs and preferences. We also value the input and feedback of children and young people, and we encourage them to participate in decision-making processes that affect them. We are committed to providing ongoing training and support to our staff and volunteers on child safety and wellbeing, and we foster a culture of accountability and transparency in our organisation. We have clear procedures for reporting and responding to any concerns or allegations of child harm or abuse, and we work collaboratively with relevant authorities and agencies to ensure the best outcomes for children and young people. We are committed to continuous improvement and review of our child safety and wellbeing practices, and we welcome any suggestions or feedback from our stakeholders and the community.
